May 2013 PSERC Webinar: Managing Wind Variability with Self-Reserves and Responsive Demand

April 9, 2013

The DOE-funded Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC) is offering a free public webinar on managing wind variability in energy production. The webinar will be held Tuesday, May 7, 2013 from 2-3 p.m. No pre-registration is necessary.

Using wind power to supply up to 20%, or more, of electrical demand is increasingly popular in policy mandates, yet is relatively untested in terms of actual system and market operations. This presentation will investigate the concept of self-reserves, wherein wind generators withhold a portion of forecasted energy production, via their hour-ahead schedule, in order to minimize dispatch deviations in real-time.
