Generating capacity—basic probability methods

Chapter

Abstract

The determination of the required amount of system generating capacity to ensure an adequate supply is an important aspect of power system planning and operation. The total problem can be divided into two conceptually different areas designated as static and operating capacity requirements. The static capacity area relates to the long-term evaluation of this overall system requirement. The operating capacity area relates to the short-term evaluation of the actual capacity required to meet a given load level. Both these areas must be examined at the planning level in evaluating alternative facilities; however, once the decision has been made, the short-term requirement becomes an operating problem. The assessment of operating capacity reserves is illustrated in Chapter 5.
