Starting in 2009, the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute, the Hawaiian Electric Company, and the General Electric Company, in collaboration with DOE, jointly developed and validated state-of-the-art power systems models of the Oahu and Maui electrical systems to study the operational impacts of increasing levels of wind and solar generation. These models were central to a series of coordinated, detailed technical studies which included the 2010 Hawaiian Islands Transmission Interconnection Studies (Stage I: Cable), the 2011 Oahu Wind Integration and Transmission Study (OWITS), the 2012 Hawaii Solar Integration Study (HSIS), and the 2013 Hawaiian Islands Interconnection Studies (Stage II: Grid Tie). This article focuses on key OWITS and HSIS findings for Oahu.
