Description The share of renewable energy has increased in recent years, reaching almost 50% or even more in many countries. Consequently, the role of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) is also increasing, and to use this power storage systems are necessary to reduce the uncertainty associated with the variability of the sources. In fact, the intermittency in the production could lead to instability of the grid in terms of frequency and voltage, and the storage system acts as a buffer between the generation side and the load side. However, the storage system cannot be the only solution to the problem of variability of the RES. Rather, various optimization strategy can be used to increase the percentage of power that can be feed directly from the VRES technologies, without the need for a storage system.
This work focuses on wind turbines and aims to show how developments in this technology have affected power variability and instantaneous penetration. Once the framework is clarified, a strategy will be developed to optimize the instantaneous share instead of just generating electricity.
