Managing Wind Variability with Self-Reserves and Responsive Demand | PSERC Public Webinar

Date: 

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 1:00pm

Using wind power to supply up to 20%, or more, of electrical demand is increasingly popular in policy mandates, yet is relatively untested in terms of actual system and market operations. This presentation will investigate the concept of self-reserves, wherein wind generators withhold a portion of forecasted energy production, via their hour-ahead schedule, in order to minimize dispatch deviations in real-time. 1721 Engineering Hall. 1-2 p.m. Cost: free.
