The "CARE" system overview : advanced control advice for power systems with large scale Integration of renewable Energy Sources

Abstract : In this paper, CARE an advanced control system for the optimal operation and management of isolated power systems with increased wind power integration, is presented. This control system minimises the production costs through an on-line optimal scheduling of the power units, which takes into account the technical constraints of the thermal units, as well as short-term forecasts of the load and the renewable resources. The power system security is maximised through on-line security assessment modules, which predict the power system capacity to withstand pre-selected disturbances caused by power variations from both the renewable and thermal power sources or from faults.
