Carbon Reduction Potential with Intelligent Control of Power Systems
Climate change caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions such as carbon dioxide (CO2) is now widely accepted as a real condition that has potentially serious consequences for human society and industries need to factor this into their strategic plans. One salient planning assumption is that energy - essential for every activity - will become more expensive relative to other inputs. Economic growth does not have to be linked to an increase of GHG emissions and can be attained in addition to the usage of renewable energy sources by using energy efficiency technologies for power system generation, transmission, and distribution. The development of intelligent energy-efficient control technologies will both soften negative effects of the climate change on the economy and enhance energy security. This paper outlines the significant carbon reduction potential with intelligent control and optimization techniques applied to power system generation and transmission systems with and without wind farms.
