SUPWINDProject reference: 20158
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV
Decision support for large scale integration of wind power
The project has the following objectives:
- Demonstrate the applicability of decision support tools based on stochastic analysis and programming for operational management of grids and power plants
- Demonstrate the applicability of strategic analysis tools for decision support for long-term management of grids
- Detailed analysis of improved coordination mechanisms between grid operators, power plant operators, power exchanges etc.
Based on the planning tool developed in the WILMAR project, a set of tools is developed which support Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and other stakeholders in their operational and strategic decision making related to the integration of high shares of wind or other fluctuating renewables. More specifically the evaluation of regional and trans-national transmission line investments caused by large scale introduction of wind power will be analysed in detail.
