Abstract

The increasing penetration of wind in power systems can result in various challenges for system security and reliability, as well as wind farm investability. These challenges require further research to develop an understanding of the operation of a wind farm with and without the use of complementary technologies, such as energy storage, particularly, when the wind turbines have Frequency Control Ancillary Services (FCAS) capability. This thesis therefore first presents a hierarchical, data-driven, reduced order model of a wind farm, which accounts for the correlation between wind turbines' power output. It finds that the cross-correlation between each turbines' power generation is depende..
