Wind Power Integration Peculiarities in the Electricity System of the Baltic States
Keywords:capacity factor, penetration, wind power
Analysis of wind power utilization efficiency around the world and Europe has revealed the gap between feasible and factual power generation. The paper presents an investigation of wind power generation dynamics, penetration levels into the electricity system, and dependence of capacity factors on the hub height and the rotor diameter of wind turbines in the Baltic States. These factors are the main for the evaluation of wind power utilization efficiency. Wind power penetration levels show that possibilities of the energy system to accept more wind power installations in the Baltic States are far away from its limit. Besides, dependence of high wind turbines capacity factors’ on the hub height and the rotor diameter in the range of 20–120 m was revealed.
