SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY LITERATURE SURVEY OF WIND POWER INTEGRATION WITH HYDROELECTRIC ENERGY (final, PDF, 34KB)
By Ted Bechtel
Research Product completed on June 24, 2014

Hydropower generation is much more flexible than coal-fired steam or nuclear generation and will be needed (along with natural gas units) to meet the more dynamic needs of the power system. Doing this in a manner that preserves efficiency and minimizes operating costs is the goal of this research – Wind Hydropower Integration (WHI). A survey of the existing literature provides a foundation for new studies that build on the research that has already been performed.
