Abstract: With the advent of wind power generation on worldwide power systems, many operators and researchers are analyzing the impacts that higher future amounts may have on system operations. Many of the tools are analyzing longer term impacts on the steady-state operations of power systems and are primarily using cost as a metric. They are also using tools that are often inflexible to accommodating different market designs or operational structures. In this paper a model was developed to mimic operator behavior using a combination of security-constrained unit commitment, security-constrained economic dispatch, and automatic generation control programs. New metrics are used to compare reliability in terms of energy imbalance for different systems or different market and operational structures at very high time resolution. Finally an example application of the tool and results for a test system are shown.
