    Renewable energy sources (RESs) have been increasingly adopted in modern power systems (PSs) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote sustainability. However, the integration of these sources poses challenges in frequency regulation, which is critical for maintaining grid stability. This chapter provides an overview of renewable-dominated PSs and their frequency regulation issues. The challenges associated with the integration of intermittent RESs and their impact on the PS frequency have been discussed. A review of various techniques used for frequency regulation in renewable-dominated PSs, including robust control and artificial intelligence (AI)-based controllers has been provided. In addition, the role of energy storage systems and FACTS devices to cope with the challenges that occur due to the rapid integration of renewable sources in PSs has been discussed. Furthermore, this chapter highlights the benefits, challenges, and future prospects and various frequency regulation strategies to enable a successful transition to renewable-dominated PSs.
