With high penetration of non-synchronous wind generations replacing conventional generators, the inertia of power system will reduce. A large disturbance in such a power system can cause faster frequency change in this power system and might invoke emergency defence strategies like underfrequency load shedding. The impact of low inertia caused due to displacement of conventional generators by wind penetration on the power system frequency is investigated in this paper. The possibilities of improving frequency with increase in primary reserve supplied from conventional generators are analyzed. This paper further explores the capabilities of wind turbines to provide support during underfrequency to prevent load shedding. Maximum wind penetration possible without causing load shedding following a large disturbance is also investigated.
