Keywords: Renewable energy Intermittent generation Wind power Solar power Carbon emissions a b s t r a c t A new generator portfolio planning model is described that is capable of quantifying the carbon emissions associated with systems that include very high penetrations of variable renewables. The model combines a deterministic renewable portfolio(More)
This paper provides a framework for understanding the body of literature that has been devoted to the behavior and reliability of intermittent renewables, and discusses recent grid integration analyses within this framework. ABSTRACT | Renewable electric power sources like wind and solar have been shown from a resource perspective to have significant(More)
The carbon abatement potentials of wind turbines, photovoltaics, and concentrating solar power plants were investigated using dispatch simulations over California with 2005–06 meteorological and load data. A parameterization of the simulation results is presented that provides approximations of both low-penetration carbon abatement rates and maximum carbon(More)
