The quest for energy independence and the push towards sustainability coupled with the legislative initiatives and the recent advances in wind generation technology have made wind one of the fastest growing sources for electricity production. The effective integration of wind generation resources into the power grids requires the evaluation of the impacts of wind resources on the system performance. Of particular interest are the impacts on the utilization of the transmission assets and system stability. In this paper, we present techniques which provide a systematic quantification of the impacts of wind resource integration on the system. The evaluation of these impacts on the transmission usage is useful for planning purposes. Similarly, the stability analysis techniques have applications in the operations arena. We present some illustrative examples of the proposed techniques.
