A new report by researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the University of Colorado, and the Edison Electric Institute on Active Power Controls from Wind Power: Bridging the Gaps shows that “wind power technology can assist the power system by providing control of its active power output being injected onto the grid…. The focus of this report is a mitigation strategy that is not often discussed and is in some ways counter-intuitive: the use of wind power to support power system reliability by providing active power control (APC) at fast timescales. APC is the adjustment of a resource’s active power in various response time frames to assist in balancing the generation and load, thereby improving power system reliability.” Read the full report here
