Understanding the Role of Short-term Energy Storage and Large Motor Loads for Active Power Controls by Wind Power

​The goal of this 3-year effort is to develop and test coordinated controls of active power by wind generation, short term energy storage, and large industrial motor drives for providing various types of ancillary services to the grid and minimizing loading impacts and thereby reducing operation and maintenance costs (O&M) and subsequently the cost of energy (COE) generated by wind power.
