Short-Term Power Fluctuations of Large Wind Power Plants: Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


With electric utilities and other power providers showing increased interest in wind power and with growing penetration of wind capacity into the market, questions about how wind power fluctuations affect power system operations and about wind power's ancillary services requirements are receiving lots of attention. The project's purpose is to acquire actual, long-term wind power output data foranalyzing wind power fluctuations, frequency distribution of the changes, the effects of spatial diversity, and wind power ancillary services.
