Abstract

The increase of wind power output displaces conventional generation challenging therefore power system secure operation. Actually wind turbines are not
asked to provide all the ancillary services that conventional generators are obliged to. The paper is aimed at studying the frequency stability of a small power system, with different level of wind penetration, analyzing the possible contribution to system security by the provision of inertial response and primary
power frequency control by wind turbines.
