Very short variations in voltage (timescale less than 10 minutes) due to variations in wind and solar power
2015 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
This paper presents results from a study on variations in voltage magnitude at a timescale less than 10 minutes, due to measured variations in wind and solar production. The variations are compared with the measured variations at several low and medium-voltage sites. It is concluded that individual solar panels are not a concern but that several solar panels connected to the same low-voltage feeder may lead to a noticeable increase in voltage variations at this timescale. Individual wind turbines and wind farms are not expected to lead to a significant increase in voltage variations. The voltage variations do change in character by the introduction of wind and solar power.
