The variability of power generation from wind farms presents an operational challenge for power systems with significant penetration of wind generation. In weak or relatively small systems, control of system frequency and power exchange can impact the viability of wind farms. The emergence of highly maneuverable, high efficiency simple-cycle gas turbines allows for hybrid wind/gas turbine systems with superior dynamic performance.
