Renewable Energy Sources Based Grid Integration: An Introspective Analysis
Deepak Kumar Goyal and Sudhir Keshari

To foster sustainable, low-emission development, renewable energy is the best solution for electricity supply, however solar and wind energy are more variable and uncertain than conventional sources. The demand of electricity can be compensated by involving these into power system planning and operations. Grid integration is the efficient ways to deliver variable renewable energy to the grid. Renewable energy is increasing in popularity worldwide. Since renewable energy is intermittent, the integration of renewable energy resources into the power grid infrastructure is a challenging task because the requirements for a power-electronic interface are not just the renewable energy source itself but also its effect on the operation of the power structure, particularly if an intermittent power source is used. This paper discusses the definition, challenges and possible solutions of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) based network incorporation into the energy system. The history of RES with its environmental implications and implementation is also being addressed with a study for primary use of RES and of non- RES in India.
