Abstract

Although integrating a large amount of wind power is technically possible, higher integration costs might be incurred when the penetration level of this intermittent power increases. This paper reviews wind power variability and its different impacts on power systems. In addition, an up-to-date overview of wind power balancing costs is presented.
