The large-scale integration of wind power into electrical power systems is likely to require significant improvements to transmission infrastructure over coming years. Planning for these developments may involve modeling of power systems using estimates of the time-varying power output of proposed wind farms. Such estimates may be derived from wind measurements, although it is rarely the case that measurements are available simultaneously for all sites of interest. In the present work, a method is developed to produce synthetic time-series of wind power at several locations based on a measured time-series of wind speed from a reference site. The stochastic properties of the modeled time-series are shown to be comparable with those of measured data from south-eastern Australia. It is anticipated that with appropriate tuning for local conditions, the method could be applied in other geographical regions.
