#Windpower can indeed improve electrical grid resiliency, @GE study shows: REFocusmag: #windenergy

The study, which was sponsored by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory, modeled the country's Eastern Interconnection --- one of the largest electrical systems in the world --- and determined that when equipped with the appropriate modern plant controls, wind applications can substantially enhance grid resiliency. GE's Energy Consulting business presented the findings of its frequency response study on wind power and grid resiliency at the CIGRE Session 45 in Paris. Questions about how the U.S. electrical systems would respond to a large-scale interruption of generation, such as multiple power plants tripping offline, were the catalyst for the study. An event like this could result in significantly lower frequencies on the system, customer interruptions or even large-scale blackouts. The study explored in detail how the grid could respond to a major event and mainta...
