Abstract:   (1813 Views)

Utilization of wind turbines as economic and green production units, poses new challenges to the power system planners, mainly due to the stochastic nature of the wind, adding a new source of uncertainty to the power system. Different types of distribution and correlation between this random variable and the system load makes conventional method inappropriate for modeling such a correlation. In this paper, the correlation between the wind speed and system load is modeled using Copula, a mathematical tool recently used in the field of the applied science. As the effect of the correlation coefficient is the main concern, the copula modeling technique allows simulating various scenarios with different correlations. The conducted simulations in this paper reveals that the wind speed correlation with the load has significant effect on the system reliability indices, such as expected energy not served (EENS) and loss of load probability (LOLP). Moreover, in this paper the effect of the correlation coefficient on the effective load carrying capability (ELCC) of the wind turbines is analyzed, too. To perform the aforementioned simulations and analyses, the modified RBTS with an additional wind farm is used.
