Impact of wind power development on transmission planning at Midwest ISO
Manjure, Durgesh P, Mishra, Yateendra, Brahma, Sukumar, & Osborn, Dale (2012) Impact of wind power development on transmission planning at Midwest ISO. IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy, 3(4), pp. 845-852.
The Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator (MISO) has experienced significant amounts of wind power development within the last decade. The MISO footprint spans the majority of the upper Midwest region of the country, from the Dakotas to Indiana and as far east as Michigan. These areas have a rich wind energy resource. States in the MISO footprint have passed laws or set goals that require load serving entities to supply a portion of their load using renewable energy. In order to meet these requirements, significant investments are needed to build the transmission infrastructure necessary to deliver the power from these often remote wind energy resources to the load centers. This paper presents some of the transmission planning related work done at MISO which was largely influenced by current and future needs for increased wind power generation in the footprint. Specifically, topics covered are generator interconnection, long-term planning coordination, and cost-allocation for new transmission lines.
