“How can we manage fluctuations in the Electric Grid?”

 

The electric grid is bound to have fluctuations. And one of the most important duties of engineers is to keep everything running smoothly. So how can the grid be kept stable? Well, this can be managed through Ancillary Services such as voltage stabilization (ensuring that building equipment operates at their specified rating so they don’t draw too much power), frequency stabilization (making the grid operates at its standard frequency) and a continuous power supply (using technology such as batteries and backup generators to ensure the grid always has power).
