Renewable Energy Dispatch Tools PROJECT [Jul/2013 - Dec/2016]

The main goal of the project is to deploy new and improve existing tools to be used by the system operator to manage high level of intermittent renewable energy such wind and solar.

The probabilistic approach in wind and solar forecasting allows the quantification of forecast uncertainty, and it is possible to know what additional reserves are needed to integrate this variable generation into the electric system.

In view of the high penetration levels of this type of renewable production, they must also participate in system services, providing frequency and voltage control. This project demonstrated the capability of a wind farm to provide this type of control at the point of interconnection, as well as at the level of a solar inverter for photovoltaic systems.
