Complex statistics of regenerative power feed-in — •Matthias Wächter, Mehrnaz Anvari, Patrick Milan, and Joachim Peinke — Instute of Physics and ForWind, Carl von Ossietzky University, 26111 Oldenburg, Germany
Future power grids are expected to experience a high share of renewable power generation. These renewable sources present pronounced statistical features stemming from the turbulent and intermittent nature of the wind and solar resources. Such features include strongly intermittent power fluctuations as well as long-range and higher-order correlations in time and space. Moreover, photovoltaic power feed-in is characterized by jump-like behavior due to cloud borders. We will give an overview on the current knowledge of these complex statistics specific for renewable power, which will pose significant challenges for future power grids.
