Abstract

If excess generation caused by increasing of photovoltaic and wind power generation plants is foreseen in a power system, the generation outputs of those plants are curtailed as a last resort in order to maintain the integrity of the power system. This paper proposes how the problem of minimizing curtailed excess wind power and allocating it fairly to all wind power generators can be formulated and solved with a linear programming method. Especially, necessary conditions for the minimum and fair allocation are identified mathematically. The validity of the LP based method has been checked with numerical computation of a simplified power system model.
