Abstract: In power systems the occurrence probability of operating points close to network limits may be increased as a result of high wind penetration. Consequences of such scenarios include inefficient exploitation of both wind and economic resources. A well chosen allocation of wind capacity not only is in line with the trend of renewables integration in power systems but also allows for limiting the occurrence probability of unsafe operating points that may require costly remedies. In this work, a voltage stability constrained optimal power flow (VSC-OPF) framework is presented for transmission system planning and applied to wind capacity allocation. This framework captures multiple wind and demand scenarios within the OPF. The pattern of wind capacity allocation is studied in order to assess its impact on voltage stability and the total wind capacity allocation. The results emphasize the effect of the capacity allocation pattern on improvement of voltage stability.
