How do Wind and Solar Power Affect Grid Operations: The Western Wind and Solar Integration Study

A ten-page, preprint paper, on the Western Wind and Solar Integration Study. It is one of the largest regional wind and solar integration studies to date, examining the operational impact of up to 35% wind, photovoltaics, and concentrating solar power on the WestConnect grid in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wyoming. This paper reviews the scope of the study, the development of wind and solar datasets, and the results to date on three scenarios.
