Summary
Power system characteristics that mitigate and accommodate variability make it easier to integrate wind into grid operations. Wind-friendly physical characteristics include geographically and electrically large balancing areas, as well as generator characteristics such as fast-ramping, load-following capability. They also include generation and transmission market structures that provide access to conventional generation flexibility and maneuverability; the ability of a generator to ramp up and down quickly and accurately, to turn on and off quickly and at low cost, and the ability to operate at low minimum loads. Advanced wind forecasting, integrated into the power system control room, can also help wind integration costs by providing the power system operator with a reliable look at the near future balancing requirements. This paper attempts to evaluate which balancing area (BA) characteristics best accommodate wind energy
