Large-scale wind power penetration can affectthe supply continuity in the power system. This is a matterof high priority to investigate, as more regulating reservesand specified control strategies for generation control arerequired in the future power system with even more highwind power penetration. This paper evaluates the impact oflarge-scale wind power integration on future power systems.An active power balance control methodology is usedfor compensating the power imbalances between thedemand and the generation in real time, caused by windpower forecast errors. The methodology for the balancepower control of future power systems with large-scalewind power integration is described and exemplified consideringthe generation and power exchange capacities in2020 for Danish power system.
