Our society revolves around electricity. Most electricity is produced from fossil fuels, such as coal and natural gas. The disadvantages are that their supply is finite and unevenly distributed across the earth. Conventional power stations also emit greenhouse gases. Therefore, sustainable alternativees must be developed, such as wind power. The disadvantages of wind are that it may or may not blow and that it is unpredictable. Th generation of electricity must however always equal the… 
Power Systems with Large Amounts of Wind Power
1.0 Introduction ind power will introduce more uncertainty into operating a power system because it is variable and partly unpredictable. To meet this challenge, there will be need for more
Analysis of balancing requirements in future sustainable and reliable power systems
It is shown that existing regulatory aspects do influence the technical performance of the imbalance settlement system, as current regulation enforces and creates incentives for market parties to balance in terms of energy, while power balancing would ideally be desired.
First Aspect of Conventional Power System Assessment for High Wind Power Plants Penetration
Most power systems in underdeveloped and developing countries are based on conventional power plants, mainly "slow-response" thermal power plants and a certain number of hydro power plants;
Control Architecture Modeling for Future Power Systems
This work adresses the challenge of power system operation and control not by providing a universal solution, but by providing some basic modeling methodology that enables better problem solving.
Managing wind power variability and uncertainty through increased power system flexibility
Variability and uncertainty of wind power generation increase the cost of maintaining the short-term energy balance in power systems. As the share of wind power grows, this cost becomes increasingly
A market-based investigation of large-scale Renewable Energy integration in Northwestern Europe
A high increase in the installed capacities of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) is expected by 2020 and beyond in Europe, and power systems planners and regulators have to make sure that the power
Balancing wind power with virtual power plants of micro-CHPs
Higher participation levels of wind power in power systems will increase the need for flexible back-up generation to balance the differences between predicted and realized wind power production. This
Case study for the integration of 12 GW wind power in the Dutch power system by 2020
In this paper, we investigate the possibility of integrating 12 GW of onshore and offshore wind energy in the power system of the Netherlands. Interconnection capacities to the rest of the


Integration of wind power in the liberalized Dutch electricity market
Wind power is becoming a large-scale electricity generation technology in a number of European countries, including the Netherlands. Owing to the variability and unpredictability of wind power
The impact of large scale wind power production on the Nordic electricity system
This thesis studies the impact of large amounts of wind power on the Nordic electricity system. The impact on both the technical operation of the power system and the electricity market are
Integration of large-scale wind power and use of energy storage in the netherlands' electricity supply
The use of energy storage for increased operational flexibility is commonly regarded as a logical complement for systems with large amounts of wind power. The authors explore, the opportunities for

  • 2007
In this paper, a stochastic electricity market model is applied to estimate the effects of significant wind power generation on system operation and on economic value of investments in compressed air
Economic evaluation of offshore wind power in the liberalized Dutch power market
The variability and limited predictability of wind power challenges the operation of power systems, where the generation and load are required in balance at all times. The transmission system
A survey of interconnection requirements for wind power
A procedure is developed for the simulation of power system balancing and the assessment of AGC performance in the presence of large-scale wind power, using the Dutch control zone as a case study.
Wind Power Integration: Connection and system operational aspects
The rapid growth of wind power and the implications of this on future power system planning, operation and control has become an even greater challenge in today's liberated electricity market
