Abstract

Increased renewable energy, climate change impacts, and energy storage will affect power system dynamics and thermal plant behavior and emissions. This research explores the effects of these factors on natural gas plant start cycles and consequent emissions. Energy storage can be deployed to mitigate the emissions from increased power plant starting and stopping. Thus, a multi-pollutant, sector-wide approach to protecting air quality will be most appropriate and effective for managing future power system emissions.
