Wind Power Plant Behaviors: Analyses of Long-Term Wind Power Data

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


The wind industry's growth is hampered by many market barriers, some of which stem from utilities' lack of experience with the technology. The effects of wind power fluctuations on power system operations and requirements of ancillary services for wind power have increasingly become concerns for many electric utilities and wind power developers. To rememdy the situation, NREL has undertaken aproject to record long-term, high-resolution wind power output data from large wind power plants in various regions.
