This paper investigates the reliability effects on a composite generation and transmission system associated with the addition of large-scale wind energy conversion systems (WECS) using the state sampling Monte Carlo simulation technique. Three types of composite system were developed to represent the general conditions that exist in practical systems and used to conduct the studies presented in this paper. Load point and system indices for the three types of test systems are presented to illustrate the impact of adding wind farms in various system locations and the effect of varying the degree of wind speed correlation. The contributions of large-scale wind farms considering different degrees of wind speed correlation to the reliability performance of an electric power system are quantified in this paper.
