Hi,

I'd like to share this article which I found really great about how windturbines are providing primary reserve through synthetic inertia, the case of Quebec. There's been a tremendous evolution in the last decade, from WTG being passive to being major player in grid stability. And there still a lot potential, with power electronics improving everyday and massive digitalisation coming!
