Towards high penetration and firm power from wind energy ('FIRMWIND')

Objectif

Due to variability, Wind Energy within an Electrical Distribution System has a limited Capacity Credit. This limits exploitation, particularly in remote, weak grids, in island grids and in rural electrification schemes. 'FIRMWIND' will investigate innovative measures to increase Wind Energy's realisable capacity Credit. The project proposes holistic, energy management control of the distribution system including generation plant, consumer loads, storage devices and the import/export link. The project will select and analyse real situations in Europe and in export markets. The analysis will combine analysis methods used by utilities with design techniques used for autonomus'wind-diesel' systems. The optimum solutions will be found by techno-economic assessment. The feasibility of the solutions will be investigated in the context of deregulated market mechanisms.
