Impacts of Wind (and Solar) Power on Power System Stability
As electrical grids integrate higher shares of wind and solar power, assessing their impact on power system dynamics becomes increasingly important. Blackouts are very costly for society, so system reliability must be maintained at a very high level. There is increasing operational experience that wind and solar power plants can support the system during disturbance conditions, if the latest technology is adopted, suitable planning has been undertaken, and appropriate incentives are in place.
