Abstract: This paper studies the impact of balancing wind generation with storage on the thermal plant mix and load for different levels of installed wind and storage, and under different operational strategies. Moreover, the optimal time frame to be used for the optimization of the system operation is studied and the possible revenue that can be generated by the system with wind and storage is calculated for different scenarios. It is shown that the introduction of intermittent energy resources reduces the participation of the base-load plants and increases the peaking plants, and the increasing storage dramatically increases the participation of the midmerit plants. Furthermore, the mid-merit strategy and 24 hours time frame resulted in the best use of the system with wind and storage.
