In this paper, a strategy is proposed in order to introduce in a realistic way wind generation into a HLII (bulk power system) non sequential Monte Carlo adequacy study with economic dispatch. Thanks to the implemented solution, wind generation is consequently confronted to operational constraints related to high powered thermal units, nuclear parks or thermal machines with technical minimum value. Moreover, during each simulated system state, a DC load flow is also calculated in order to evaluate reinforcements optimizing the large scale integration of wind power production. The simulation tool modified during the present work is called Scanner© and is the property of Tractebel Engineering (Gaz de France - Suez) company. Finally, in order to fully access the large offshore wind potential in the North Sea, the proposed simulation tool has been used to evaluate the onshore reinforcements required in the Belgian transmission network.
