Transmission and System Integration of Wind Power in the Netherlands

  title={Transmission and System Integration of Wind Power in the Netherlands},
  author={Wil L. Kling and Bart C. Ummels and Ralph L. Hendriks},
  journal={2007 IEEE Power Engineering Society General Meeting},
In this paper, an overview of wind power transmission and system integration aspects is presented for the Netherlands. Particular aspects regarding the Netherlands, such as the market organisation with respect to wind power, the technical characteristics of conventional generation units and grid connection of offshore wind power, are discussed in detail. Power system integration of wind power typically comprises local impacts (distribution level), grid connection aspects (perephery of the…

Challenges of High Renewable Energy Sources Integration in Power Systems—The Case of Croatia
The outlook for the Croatian power system is given, that will most probably double its RES capacity in the coming 3-year period and a certain level of investments and changes of current operational practices will need to be provided.

To maintain stability within the UCTE-grid, European TSOs are responsible for maintaining a balance between generation, import, consumption and export in their control zones. This responsibility is


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
Impacts of Wind Power on Thermal Generation Unit Commitment and Dispatch
This paper proposes a new simulation method that can fully assess the impacts of large-scale wind power on system operations from cost, reliability, and environmental perspectives. The method uses a
Grid support by power electronic converters of distributed generation units
An increasing number of small Distributed Generation (DG) units are connected to the grid. The introduction of DG causes several problems, which are mainly related to the differences between DG units
