Implementing frequency response using grid-connected inverters is one of the popular alternatives to mitigate the dynamic degradation experienced in low inertia power systems. However, such solution faces several challenges as inverters do not intrinsically possess the natural response to power fluctuations that synchronous generators have. Thus, to synthetically generate "virtual" inertia, inverters need to take frequency measurements, which are usually noisy, and subsequently make changes in the output power, which is therefore delayed.

It can invite people to dance or offer comfort in times of distress; it can be used in reverence of God, or offer commentary on life’s great joys and tribulations. Just as “there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens”, there is music to accompany it all.

It is laudable to have a mission and a clarity of purpose to deliver the fundamental physics and Material design innovations that would pave way to the next set of devices to handle Energy Access Challenges. But the solutions must be adopted in the cultural context of the way people live their lives. The key is to have a deep supply chain expertise to provide solutions at both a price point and performance point that are sustainable.
