    National Grid Measures Real-Time System Inertia for the First Time

    Until now, grid operators used estimates to measure grid stability, otherwise known as system inertia, leaving measurements suspect to margin errors. These estimates were also used to set multi-year budgets for grid infrastructure investments, energy reserve services and dictated the trading outlooks between renewable and fossil fuel energy being used by the grid. However, Project SIM has enabled the National Grid to gain real-time visibility of inertia on its systems, which are becoming increasing volatile as intermittent renewables generation claims a greater share of the UK’s energy mix.
