WP8: International collaboration (IEA Annex 25)

In 2008 the IEA Annex 25 Design and operation of power systems with large amounts of wind power has been completed [13]. A continuation of the Annex is planned [12] and this part of the Transnational Grid project represents the interaction between the project and the second phase of IEA Annex 25. The objective for Task 25 is to provide information to facilitate the highest economically feasible wind energy penetration within electricity power systems worldwide. Task 25 supports this goal by analysing and further developing the methodology to assess the impact of wind power on power systems and producing information on range of impacts and best practices to assess the impacts.
