The impact of wind generation on isolated power systems: The case of Cyprus
In this paper, we explore the impact of wind generation on isolated power systems, using the system of Cyprus (an island) as a case study. Since 2010, Cyprus has been facing the challenge of integrating intermittent wind generation, while maintaining a secure and economical power system operation. This integration has raised the reserves requirements, and has undermined the ability to accurately track the unit commitment and dispatch day-ahead plan in real time. To evaluate the impact of these effects, we model the daily electrical power system operation of Cyprus as a day-ahead unit commitment and economic dispatch problem, and simulate the system for a long horizon of many days, under different scenarios of wind penetration, using historical data of wind generation. © 2013 IEEE.
