Overvoltages due to wind power: hosting capacity, deterministic and statistical approaches
2008 (English)In: Electrical Power Quality and Utilization, ISSN 1234-6799, Vol. 3, no 2, 2-15 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper introduces methods to quantify the impact of wind power and other types of distributed generation on the overvoltage risk. The so-called hosting capacity approach, introduced in the very first issue of this magazine, is used as the basic approach. Both a deterministic and a statistical approach are introduced. The deterministic approach is suitable for generation with a constant production most of the time. However, it is shown that a deterministic approach could easily result in an unnecessary barrier against the introduction of wind power. For any method used to determine the hosting capacity, a serious discussion is needed about overvoltage indices and objectives.
