Course Summary:

In this course, we review a sample of 40 detailed transmission studies that have included wind power. These studies cover a broad geographic area, and were completed from 2001-2008. The primary goal in reviewing these studies is to develop a better understanding of the transmission costs needed to access growing quantities of wind generation. A secondary goal is to gain a better appreciation of the differences in transmission planning approaches in order to identify those methodologies that seem most able to estimate the incremental transmission costs associated with wind development.

Learning Objective:

  • Introduction
  • Description of Transmission Studies
  • Methodology
  • Results
  • Discussion of Transmission Cost Drivers
  • Comparison of top down transmission
