Abstract / Description of output

With high levels of variable renewable generation in distribution or transmission systems the application of demand and generation time series to power flow analyses can be advantageous. Demand data is often available from historic measurements while renewable generation such as wind turbine output may be recorded or can be derived from resource measurements over the corresponding period of time. Power flow solutions with hourly time steps over a year or more can then be used to produce load duration curves for system components. This paper shows, by example, how utilities can use the method to determine overload conditions or to specify non-firm connection agreements for new generators.
