Description: 

The study evaluated the impact of wind generation on the New York State Bulk Power System (NYSBPS) over a broad range of subject areas, including planning, operation, economics, and reliability. Based on the results of this study, it is expected that the NYSBPS can reliably accommodate at least 10% of the New York state peak load (3,300 MW) of wind generation with only minor adjustments to its existing planning, operation, and reliability practices. The model included 600 MW from 5 separate offshore wind farms that connected to the Long Island transmission grid.
