Power Network Analysis for Wind Power Integration

Project

EMS is the Serbian Transmission System and Market Operator (TSMO) in charge for the transmission of electricity through the high voltage network, system operation, grid services, electricity market administration, and the balancing market. EMS is confronted with the challenge of linking planned wind power capacities to the national grid network and to assess their impact on the operation and security of the Serbian (and regional) electricity network.

To accommodate the future integration of wind energy, whose potential is highly concentrated in the North East Region of Serbia near the Romanian border and which supply fluctuates depending on wind speed, EMS needed to forecast the implication of installing sizeable wind power generation capacities by referring to international good practices.

EMS believed that the applications from permitted and proposed wind park sites are already at the critical point concerning power system control capabilities and made a decision to stop consideration of further requests for wind power generation to be connected to the transmission network until a detailed analysis of the power system control capabilities was undertaken by VPC.

The specific objectives of the project were:

(a)    to enable EMS to determine the appropriate levels of wind power capacity which may be connected to the national grid and appropriate operational and technical parameters for management of such connected capacity, and

(b)    to identify whether investment is needed to strengthen the national grid in order to increase the capacity of wind power which could be connected, and if so, what investment is required.
