Ramping Issues and Solutions — November 19, 2014 at 11:00 AM (Mountain) | [presentation] |
High penetrations of wind and solar can increase ramping needs. High penetrations of solar can lead to a net load “duck curve” which accentuates the need for ramping to meet the evening peak. Very high wind speeds can lead to wind cutout events that can create a need for ramping capability. We will discuss options for ramping capability including market solutions, use of existing generation, and load solutions.
