Strategies and Decision Support Systems for Integrating Variable Energy Resources in Control Centers for Reliable Grid Operations: Global Best Practices, Examples of Excellence and Lessons Learned
"This report provides utilities with recommendations and examples of success stories aimed at informing the design of decision support tools, solutions and strategies for integrating more wind energy into their own power systems. The findings help to increase the industry-wide understanding of the operational impacts of wind integration and how wind power forecast is being used today. The identified practices from a broad group of utilities can be a foundation to fast-tracking the training of dispatchers. This report could also inform the formulation of regulatory policies for wind energy, as well as aid in the establishment of future operating procedures and practices for managing wind integration in the control room environment."
