Abstract: This invited panel paper discussion will outline a number of aspects of wind energy characteristics relevant to the optimal wind/transmission model formulation task. Optimal placement of wind capacity on a constrained transmission network is a typical example of this type of problem. In particular the relevance of advanced and computationally intensive stochastic unit commitment to the model formulation will be debated. Optimization constraint matrix structure and techniques to exploit it will be shown to be of considerable importance for this type of problem. The relative merits of different model dimensionality reduction schemes, either through multivariate component analysis and probability discretisation or indeed scenario reduction, will be discussed. A pragmatic acceptance of the imprecise impact of long-term power system uncertainties will be maintained throughout, and wherever possible generality to different types of power systems will be considered.
