Integration of wind facilities into power system grids have several impact on power system related issues including; transmission congestion, optimum power flow, system stability, power quality, system economics and load dispatch. Consequently, wind farm control strategy, location across the distribution network and its penetration level could have an impact on electricity market prices. This paper addresses these issues, by developing a single auction market model. An optimal power flow problem was formulated for determining the close to real time electricity market-clearing price and the total cost of generation. Simulation results, considering different operational cases, are presented to highlight the impact.
