The changing sensitivity of power systems to meteorological drivers: a case study of Great Britain

Article English OPEN
Bloomfield, Hannah; Brayshaw, David J.; Shaffrey, Len; Coker, Phil J.; Thornton, Hazel Elizabeth;

The increasing use of intermittent renewable generation (such as wind) is increasing the exposure of national power systems to meteorological variability. This study identifies how the integration of wind power in one particular country (Great Britain, GB) is affecting ... View more
