The Effects of Integrating Wind Power on Transmission System Planning, Reliability, and Operations

The study evaluated the impact of wind generation on the New York State Bulk Power System (NYSBPS) over a broad range of subject areas, including planning, operation, economics, and reliability. Based on the results of this study, it is expected that the NYSBPS can reliably accommodate at least 10% of the New York state peak load (3,300 MW) of wind generation with only minor adjustments to its existing planning, operation, and reliability practices. The model included 600 MW from 5 separate offshore wind farms that connected to the Long Island transmission grid.
