— Stochastic variations and unpredictability of wind energy are the major concerns of power industry and hinder the wide scale adoption of wind power. Compensation of short term variability is one of the major challenges that the industry will face in the coming years. We analyze the potential impact of advanced control and storage technologies in reducing(More)
Strong coupling between the gas and electricity infrastructure introduces new kinds of vulnerabilities in energy systems. Identification and assessment of these vulnerabilities is a challenging task because of the complexity of the system and the non-trivial role of the weather, which is inherently random. Prolonged periods of cold weather can dramatically(More)
The purpose of this research is to the problem of optimal sizing of energy storage required for compensation of wind farm generation variability. Using wind farm production data from the BPA, we assess the effect of forecast quality and economic dispatch timing on the size of storage and critical power rating required to nearly perfectly match the committed(More)
