Abstract

Extreme power fluctuations in wind farms are rare but high-impact events, so proper characterization of these extreme fluctuations would assist with power systems operations planning in a power system with a high penetration of wind power. This work applies extreme value analysis methods to the statistical characterization of wind power ramps with 10-min resolution. The annual maxima series (AMS) method and peaks over threshold (POT) method are used to determine the probability of extreme wind power ramp events in a wind farm.
