|Title:||Transmission connected wind curtailment with increasing wind capacity connection||Authors:||Burke, Daniel J.
|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/3339||Date:||Jul-2009||Abstract:||Many countries have ambitious plans to increase wind energy penetration levels in the near future. With a low capacity factor and even lower capacity credit, wind power is a fundamentally different power generation source than conventional plant. Traditional planning methodologies focusing solely on the impact of turbine capacity’s impact on line flow worst-case scenarios may unnecessarily impede cost-effective wind integration. This paper assesses the impact of increased wind capacity connection on wind energy curtailment indices using a security-contrained optimal power flow model. Results indicate significant scope for increased wind capacity connection exists if small levels of wind energy curtailment are accepted.||Funding Details:||Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2009 IEEE||Keywords:||Power system planning; Power system security; Power transmission; Wind energy||Subject LCSH:||Electric power systems--Planning
