Abstract

Offshore wind power development scenarios are very ambitious. In Europe, it is expected to surpass 100 GW by 2030. As opposed to onshore, offshore wind will be concentrated in relatively small geographical areas, meaning that the geographical smoothening would be diminished. Being able to simulate this variability is important and will assist quantifying the possible impacts of large-scale deployment of offshore wind on the operation of the power system. The analysis of maximum offshore wind power ramping in 2020 and 2030 North Seas shows that wind power variability, at synchronous area level, can exceed the current dimensioning incidents values. This indicates that wind power variability should be considered in frequency stability.
