ABSTRACT
The European Union's (EU) vision implies tremendous changes in the power systems. These should contribute to sustainable development and protection of the environment by enabling the EU to achieve its targets of a 20% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, 20% increase in energy efficiency and 20% of renewable energy in final energy consumption by 2020. Encouraging of the renewable energy sources (RES) by the Romanian Government through different incentives lead since 2007 to a large volume of projects. Nowadays, the installed wind power in Romania is about 1140 MW, most of them (1103 MW) being concentrated in the south-eastern part of the country, called Dobrogea. Taking into account the different specificity of the WPP operation in different countries, based on recorded data in Romania, a couple of analyses have been performed in order to understand and try to better predict it for medium and long term network planning. These analyses were focused on full load hours, average loading of WPP, particularity of operation at night and depending on seasonal conditions, variability of WPP output for short time periods and implications on daily load curve.
