Development of a model where analizing and assessing the impact of high penetration of intermittent generation in electric system operation. The expected results will be the plant operation, general behavior of the system, reliability measures and electricity marginal costs. On the other hand, the model will allow studying potential operating measures and tactics that would be needed to operate the system with a high penetration of intermittent generation. Among these measures we can think of peaking units, pumping storage units, new hydro management strategies, active demand mechanisms, and security criteria. The model is conceived as a workbench for studying all these measures.
