October 13, 2009

This paper (PDF 1.3 MB) Download Adobe Reader reviews the scope of the Eastern Wind Integration and Transmission Study — one of the largest regional wind integration studies to date, examining the operational impact of 20% and 30% wind energy in the Eastern Interconnect and the transmission expansion needed to achieve those wind energy penetrations. The paper also reviews the development of wind datasets, the transmission expansion analysis, and the results to date of the wind integration analysis for the four scenarios.
