Stochastic Transmission Impedance Control for Enhanced Wind Energy Integration

2018 IEEE Power & Energy Society General Meeting (PESGM), 2018

In recent years, renewable energy supply in the U.S. has increased dramatically, among which wind energy has experienced the largest growth. Since the grid is not designed to handle high levels of intermittent generation, involuntary wind curtailment has been implemented commonly in many regional transmission organizations. Transmission congestion is one of the main barriers, which avoids full delivery of the ...


Wind aggregation via risky power markets

2015 IEEE Power & Energy Society General Meeting, 2015

Summary form only given. Aggregation of diverse wind power sources can effectively reduce their uncertainty, and hence the cost of wind energy integration. A risky power contract is proposed, by which wind power producers (WPPs) can trade uncertain future power for efficient wind aggregation. A two- settlement market with both the risky power contract and a conventional firm power contract ...


A Decision Framework for Optimal Pairing of Wind and Demand Response Resources

IEEE Systems Journal, 2014

Day-ahead electricity markets do not readily accommodate power from intermittent resources such as wind because of the scheduling difficulties presented by the uncertainty and variability in these resources. Numerous entities have developed methods to improve wind forecasting and thereby reduce the uncertainty in a day-ahead schedule for wind power generation. This paper introduces a decision framework for addressing the inevitable ...


Editorial Special Issue on Sustainable Energy Systems Integration

IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics, 2015

Today, more sustainable and renewable energy sources are being integrated into power systems to address the increasing concerns of energy costs, energy security, and greenhouse gas emissions. For these sustainable and renewable energy-based power generation systems, the grid-interfacing power electronics are critical links that essentially integrate the energy source, energy storage, or even small networks (e.g., microgrids) to the main ...

  • Stochastic Transmission Impedance Control for Enhanced Wind Energy Integration

    In recent years, renewable energy supply in the U.S. has increased dramatically, among which wind energy has experienced the largest growth. Since the grid is not designed to handle high levels of intermittent generation, involuntary wind curtailment has been implemented commonly in many regional transmission organizations. Transmission congestion is one of the main barriers, which avoids full delivery of the produced wind energy. An obvious but extremely costly solution to this problem is building new transmission lines. Alternatively, transfer capability over the existing transmission system can be enhanced using variable-impedance flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) devices. This paper proposes a two-stage stochastic optimization model for integrating FACTS into power system operation for a system with high levels of wind penetration. The first stage identifies an optimal base dispatch, while the second stage finds the optimal deployment of FACTS flexibilities and operational reserves for each wind scenario. Using this model, the paper studies the impacts of FACTS operation on wind energy integration. The simulation studies on an RTS-96 system verify the effectiveness of the proposed method in reducing the operation cost as well as wind curtailment. The proposed model is also computationally- efficient, as a linear FACTS model is employed.

  • Wind aggregation via risky power markets

    Summary form only given. Aggregation of diverse wind power sources can effectively reduce their uncertainty, and hence the cost of wind energy integration. A risky power contract is proposed, by which wind power producers (WPPs) can trade uncertain future power for efficient wind aggregation. A two- settlement market with both the risky power contract and a conventional firm power contract is shown to have a unique competitive equilibrium (CE), characterized in closed form. The marginal contribution and diversity contribution of each WPP to the group of all WPPs are fairly reflected in the profit earned by this WPP at the CE. Moreover, the CE achieves the same total profit as achieved by a grand coalition of WPPs. In a coalitional game setting, the profit allocation induced by the CE is always in the core, and is achieved via a non-cooperative risky power market. The benefits of the risky power market are demonstrated using wind generation and locational marginal price data for ten WPPs in the PJM interconnection.

  • A Decision Framework for Optimal Pairing of Wind and Demand Response Resources

    Day-ahead electricity markets do not readily accommodate power from intermittent resources such as wind because of the scheduling difficulties presented by the uncertainty and variability in these resources. Numerous entities have developed methods to improve wind forecasting and thereby reduce the uncertainty in a day-ahead schedule for wind power generation. This paper introduces a decision framework for addressing the inevitable remaining variability resulting from imperfect forecasts. The framework uses a paired resource, such as demand response, gas turbine, or storage, to mitigate the generation scheduling errors due to wind forecast error. The methodology determines the cost-effective percentage, or adjustment factor, of the forecast error to mitigate at each successive market stage, e.g., 1 h and 10 min ahead of dispatch. This framework is applicable to any wind farm in a region with available pairing resources, although the magnitude of adjustment factors will be specific to each region as the factors are related to the statistics of the wind resource and the forecast accuracy at each time period. Historical wind data from New England are used to illustrate and analyze this approach. Results indicate that such resource pairing via the proposed decision framework will significantly reduce the need for an independent system operator to procure additional balancing resources when wind power participates in the markets.

  • Editorial Special Issue on Sustainable Energy Systems Integration

    Today, more sustainable and renewable energy sources are being integrated into power systems to address the increasing concerns of energy costs, energy security, and greenhouse gas emissions. For these sustainable and renewable energy-based power generation systems, the grid-interfacing power electronics are critical links that essentially integrate the energy source, energy storage, or even small networks (e.g., microgrids) to the main grid. As this sustainable energy integration (especially for dispersed and small capacity sources) is mostly at the distribution level, the wide adoption of grid- interfacing converters also brings unprecedented opportunities for more active and flexible distribution systems in the future with both ac and dc networks. To operate such a system with high penetration of sustainable and renewable energy sources, a number of power electronics technologies are essential: the topology and pulsewidth modulation (PWM) of grid-interfacing power electronics, voltage/current control strategies, power flow regulation, energy management, power quality control, and so on. If designed and controlled properly, the sustainable energy systems can also help to provide ancillary functions to the power systems. The main objective of this Special Edition is to collect the latest developments in sustainable energy integration technologies.
