Abstract

Load flow is highly uncertain with the large-scale integration of wind power. It is unrealistic to adopt traditional deterministic load flow calculation for system planning and operation. A method is proposed in this study combining cumulants and Gram-Charlier expansion to calculate probabilistic load flow (PLF) of power system containing large-scale wind power. It has significantly reduced the computational time compared to Monte Carlo methods while maintaining a high degree of accuracy. The method was found quite suitable for the PLF calculation of power system with large-scale wind power injected.
