Advanced tools for the management of electricity grids with large-scale wind generation (ANEMOS.PLUS)
Start date: 01 Jan 2008, End date: 30 Jun 2011 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Nowadays, wind power has an increasing share in the electricity generation mix in several European countries. Due to the intermittent nature of wind, the large-scale integration of wind power causes several difficulties in the management of a power system. Often, a high level of reserves is allocated to account for wind power variability, thus reducing the benefits from the use of wind energy.Today it is widely recognized by end-users such as Transmission System Operators, utilities a.o. that forecasts of the power output of wind farms up to 48 hours ahead contribute to a secure and economic power system operation. The FP5 project ANEMOS (ENK5-CT-2002-0665) has successfully developed research on new forecasting techniques for a wide range of end-user requirements. The aim of the ANEMOS.PLUS proposal is to fully integrate the forecasts and their uncertainty into the management and decision support tools.
