Today, wind energy is the most popular renewable energy source and share of wind generation in overall electric power generation is expected to grow significantly for the next years. Considering this increase, energy balance problem will become harder to achieve due to unpredictable and varying nature of wind power. In order to handle with the negative impacts of wind power, it is essential to provide flexibility to power systems. This thesis focuses on the transmission system upgrade deferral for a hypothetical scenario; where a wind generation farm is connected to a near organized industrial zone. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility of the transmission structure upgrade deferral for the constructed scenario by increasing flexibility of the power system via demand side management and energy storage applications. v Using real generation and load data, proposed applications are examined for different cases. The analysis of the problem and system models are given with simulation results and obtained results are compared and discussed.
