Abstract


  • Nowadays, the world is encountering severe challenges in the energy generation sector. Environmental issues

    like climate change, global warming and Green House Gases (GHGs) and also social issues like dramatic

    increase in global population and increasing energy demand are the main causes of global concerns about

    energy resource management. In this regard, Renewable Energy Sources (RESs) are the suitable substitution

    to replace the conventional generating units that emit GHGs due to the use of fossil fuels. Among all RESs,

    wind energy seems to be promising for generating emission-free electrical energy. However, it is naturally

    unpredictable due to its intermittency which leads to s

    ome technical problems such as generation imbalance

    as well as optimal reserve allocation. This paper investigates the solutions to compensate wind intermittency

    through introducing various technolo

    gies such as Pumped-Hydro Storage (PH

    S) units, Plug-in Hybrid Electric

    Vehicles (PHEVs), solar energy and other electric storages like batteries.
