Abstract

This report presents the main activities and results of Work Package 5 – Effects of increasing wind power penetration on the power flows in European grids in the TradeWind project. VTT is the leader of Work Package 5 and carries the overall responsibility of this report. The work is based on power flow simulations with a grid and market model developed in TradeWind Work Package 3, led by Sintef Energy Research. VTT, Sintef Energy Research and Risø have carried out the simulations of the different scenarios, analysed the results and written Chapter 4 about the impact of wind power on cross-border transmission. Risø has written section 4.2 about the impact of prediction errors of wind power production. VTT has carried out the model evaluation described in Chapter 3. Furthermore VTT has analysed the wind speed data, studied the moving weather effects and the capacity factor method presented in section 2.1, Chapter 5 and section 6.1, respectively. dena has made the calculations with the probabilistic method and written section 6.2.
