Abstract

This study proposes a methodology to assess the effect of wind power production on the flexibility requirements of a power system. First, the study describes the probabilistic characteristics of the intra-hour net load variability and demonstrates that they are best captured by non-parametric statistics. Then, this non-parametric approach is used to determine simultaneously the hourly flexibility requirements at a given probability level for large and small, continuous and discrete disturbances. This approach allocates the required flexibility among primary, secondary and tertiary regulation intervals. The usefulness of this method is then illustrated using actual 1 min resolution net load data, which has been clustered to take advantage of seasonal and daily differences in flexibility requirements.
