This paper presents a new method to evaluate the reliability of a power system with high penetration of wind generation, considering the impact of not only the intermittence but also the low inertia characteristic of wind power. As wind generation gradually replaces conventional generation, the system stability and the reliability are negatively affected. Some of the measures employed to deal with the challenges resulting from increasing wind penetration include operating wind generators at lower levels than their available output and providing inertia so that wind generation is able to contribute to system frequency regulation. Apart from these measures, another factor that limits the amount of wind power that can be absorbed into the grid is the imposition of the frequency standard and this also affects the reliability of the system in the presence of wind penetration. The reliability evaluation approach proposed in this paper is developed using discrete convolution and implemented on an IEEE RTS-79 system with a suitable modification. Power system reliability with and without considering the impacts of wind intermittence and low inertia are compared to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
