Abstract

The variability and uncontrollability of wind power increases the difficulty for a power system operator to implement a wind power system with a high penetration rate. These are more serious factors to consider in small and isolated power systems since the system has small operating reserves and inertia to secure frequency and voltage. Typically, this difficulty can be reduced by interconnection with another robust power system using a controllable transmission system such as a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) system. However, the reliability and stability constraints of a power system has to be performed according to the HVDC system implementation. In this paper, the method for calculation of maximum wind power penetration in an island supplied by a HVDC power system is presented, and the operational strategy of a HVDC system is proposed to secure the power system reliability and stability. The case study is performed for the Jeju Island power system in the Korean smart grid demonstration area.
