Achieving the Highest Levels of Wind Integration— A System Operator Perspective

Ireland and Northern Ireland have policy objectives to have over 37% of total electricity consumption from wind power plants by 2020. This poses new operational challenges to power system operation and will significantly alter the performance envelope needed and provided from the system portfolio. In addition to these challenges, generators do not always perform to their expected standards during events. System operators need to understand the fundamental changes to system behavior with increased wind generation along with the actual performance capabilities of the portfolio in order to design and operate a power system which can securely and efficientlymanage the highest penetration of wind power plants.
