Capacity credit for Wind generation in South Africa

 

This report presents the results of simulation studies for assessing the capacity credit of planned wind farms in South Africa. Therefore, three scenarios have been defined and agreed between ESKOM, GIZ and DIgSILENT based on realistic assumptions with regard to wind farm sites, the potential installed wind generation capacity at these sites and the relevant characteristics of the South African power system, such as load and generation characteristics and planned expansions of thermal and hydro power plants, which have been provided by ESKOM.
