The paper1 reports the promising results achieved in the investigation on the optimal deployment in large scale integration of wind generation with the hydraulic (92%) and thermal (8%) energy generation in the Brazilian Electric Power System Interconnected (SIN). A simulation algorithm that copes with the wind variability is proposed. The work uses real historical data occurred in the time period of August 1th 2007 to July 31th 2008 and is focused on the feasibility of using hydro power generation to offset the variability of wind generation when the latest is deployed on a large scale. The result is a proposed system for generating electricity using around 96% of non thermal, fully renewable energy sources.
