The objective of the proposed work is to investigate the value of inertia as a service to grid operations. We will consider questions such as how much inertia is needed for grid operation, how much location comes into play in determining governor response, what magnitude and rate of charge/discharge storage would be needed to mimic system inertia, and what procedures would be used to value system inertia.
