Grids, wind farms and system balancing

System integration

When: Thursday, 27 September 2018, 14:45 - 16:00
Where: Room: Kopenhagen 1

Session description

The sheer amount of wind power in the power system is increasing and it will continue to increase for the coming 20-30 years. Already today some countries have over 100% wind power production for some days a year. The electric power system works today but it also shows that there is a need for stronger interconnection between countries and within countries. It also shows the need for increased control of both active and reactive power. Wind turbines need to participate in frequency and voltage control but there has to be an incentive to start this activity. This session will look at the possibility of having a large part of electric power from wind, and the need for control and interconnectors.
