The goal for solving the expansion planning (EP) problem in electrical systems involves the search for the optimal allocation of output power among available generators to serve the system load in a given time horizon. Currently, environmental aspects and the continuing search for alternative energy sources, push for the integration of wind power generators in the EP problem. In order to fulfill this new requirement, this paper developes a long-term energetic analysis for expansion planning under high wind power penetration scenarios in Colombia and its effect in neighboring countries. The simulations were developed using SDDP™ software package, a tool based in stochastic dual dynamic programming technique for hydrothermal-wind least-cost dispatch.
