Abstract

In May of 2004, the IEA Wind Implementing Agreement (IA) established R&D Task 24, "Integration of Wind and Hydropower Systems." Australia, Canada, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States joined Task 24 with the goal of collaborating in the study of wind integration in a variety of electrical system configurations (load, generation, and transmission); hydro system configurations and characteristics; and market and operational configurations. Representing these countries were utilities and research organizations with the intent to understand the potential for and limiting factors in integrating wind into systems with hydropower. Case studies that analyze the feasibility, benefits, detriments, and costs of specific wind-hydro integration projects were the mechanism through which the goals of the task were addressed. The purpose of this article is to summarize the framework within which these studies were performed, and to present the key results and the general conclusions of the Task.
