As climate action goals push utilities toward silencing their spinning generators, utilities are faced with replacing traditional inertia—critical to maintaining grid frequency—with synthetic or virtual inertia. This capability can be provided in the growing number of distributed energy resources such as solar, wind and battery storage. But what is synthetic inertia? Where does it come from and how can it be as reliable as traditional inertia? Can synthetic inertia completely replace traditional methods of maintaining system inertia? What are the risks? 

This session answers these questions and offers a proven path forward for grid operators ready to evolve electricity management beyond the way it was first conceived over 100 years ago.
