There have been many wind integration studies in recent years, and these efforts are expected to continue. Because power systems and data availability vary significantly, the results and methodologies used in these studies vary. This paper presents findings from international collaboration under IEAWIND Task 25 working towards Recommended Practices for Wind Integration studies. An overview of a complete wind integration study is presented as a flow chart. The setup of a study and main assumptions are important because they have a crucial impact on the results. The main steps in the simulations are presented with methodologies, which include the increase in reserve requirements, estimating impacts on other generation and balancing, capacity value of wind power and increase in transmission due to wind power.
