Peak load regulation in power systems is required to accommodate high levels of power penetration. Wind power generation is a relatively mature technology using renewable energy sources, both on and offshore. Since wind is a random and intermittent resource, the operation of wind power plants depends on peak load regulation of the power grid, which directly affects large-scale wind power integration. In this paper a model is presented to study the capacity of peak load regulation with offshore wind power integration. A CHWG (Coordinated Hydro and Wind Generation) approach is proposed with measures to improve peak load regulation.
