Wind curtailment

ESS integration to avoid wind curtailment





The installed capacity of the wind farm is considered as 20MW. Due to high seasonal fluctuation of wind, there is a high curtailment at different feeders at different hours. Most of the curtailment happens from 11 PM to 5 AM. Based on generation, different seasons have different levels of curtailment. In the higher windy months from June to October generation is higher; as a result, curtailment is also higher. But in other seasons from November to April (low windy season), curtailment is also lower. Curtailment per turbine varies from 1200 MWh to 1800 MWh for different feeder lines. Read more
