Abstract

This paper presents a methodology for building daily profiles of wind generation and load for different seasons to assess their impacts on voltage violations. The measurement-based wind models showed very high accuracy when validated against several years of actual wind power data. System load modeling was carried out by analyzing the seasonal trends that occur in residential, commercial, and industrial loads. When the proposed approach was implemented on the IEEE 118-bus system, it could identify violations in bus voltage profiles that the season-independent model could not capture. The results of the proposed approach are expected to provide better visualization of the problems that seasonal variations in wind power and load might cause to the electric power grid.
