    Abstract

    Restrained generation from wind and solar PV can provide a frequency response that is fast in comparison to conventional generation. However, the reduced inertia in a dispatch with little conventional generation can cause very fast initial drop in the frequency and it may be difficult to mitigate that with wind and solar PV alone. In the paper, we outline a method to compare frequency control strategies in such a system, present typical response characteristics of different options, and simulate some example cases for frequency containment in the Iberian power system. The results are demonstrative and additional analysis is required to draw more robust conclusions and to conclude on the costs and benefits of using wind and PV for frequency response.
