Wind Power Integration
In recent years considerable wind generation has been added to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System (AIES). More wind generation is in development, providing renewable electricity to Albertans.
Given the success of the wind generation industry in advancing both the technology and procurement of wind projects, the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) has been working with wind generation developers and stakeholders to address integration issues related to wind power.
The AESO has conducted technical studies examining the operational impacts of wind generation given its unique technical characteristics and variable output.
