    IEEE Oregon PES Meeting - BPA Large Wind Integration Challenges and Solutions for Transmission Operations/System Reliability

    Lloyd 700 Building

    IEEE Oregon Section Power & Energy Society Chapter Meeting

    Subject: BPA Large Wind Integration Challenges and Solutions for Transmission Operations/System Reliability Speakers: Mr. Bart McManus and Mr. Scott Simons Time/Date : September 21, 2010 - 12:30 to 1:30 PM Location: Conference Room A&B - Third floor of 700 NE Multnomah Blvd - Portland, Oregon

    Summary: BPA has experienced a large amount of wind integration over the past three years, growing from 1,000 MW in late 2007 to over 3,000 MW current installed wind capacity. In order to effectively manage this amount of wind in the BPA Balancing Authority Area, methods had to be created to calculate the total reserve needed for current and future wind penetration levels, including trying to accurately forecast the estimated output of future wind projects. Once the needed reserve was calculated, it was found that it would be difficult for BPA to manage this level of wind so multiple initiatives were created to mitigate the issues brought by large scale wind in the BPA Balancing Authority Area.

    Speakers: Bart McManus has been at BPA for 16 years. He is the wind integration lead for BPA Transmission Operations.

    Scott Simons has been at BPA for 28 years. He has served as an applications developer, project manager, and has led the transmission scheduling organization.

    Location: The Portland chapter of PES meetings will be held every third Tuesday of the month. These Meetings will be held at the Lloyd 700 Building, 700 NE Multnomah Boulevard, third floor meeting room A&B. Meetings will start at 12:30 PM and will last for one hour.
