Abstract: As integration of variable generation continues to grow rapidly in power systems globally, system planners are seeking new tools to understand the role of variable output generators and the challenges experienced with their integration. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has established a task force to examine the integration of variable generation. This paper details the achievements to date and outlines ongoing efforts from Task 1.2 on the capacity value of variable generation and from Task 1.4 on the concept of flexibility in power systems and options for its definition. Arising from international collaboration with the International Energy Agency, a discussion on the definition of flexible resources is presented. A potential metric for flexibility offered by conventional plant is developed and applied to a test system.
