News 20120107 storm

  1. 1. News January 7th, 2012 The storm caused wind turbines to produce as a reactor in Cernavodă The amount of electricity produced by wind power reached Saturday to overcome a reactor at Cernavodă (706 MW). This is due to strong winds.Eng. Paul Keisch Page 1
  2. 2. News January 7th, 2012 According to National Energy System data presented on the website of Transelectrica, Saturday, around noon, there was the largest amount of electricity produced by wind, 714 MW, i.e. 10.72% of total energy (6,660 MW). The 1,000 wind turbines in Romania managed to beat, on Saturday, production capacity of a reactor at Cernavodă. Thats because wind blew with tremendous force. Thus, the energy produced would be sufficient to supply a city with 200,000 homes. Most wind turbines are located in Dobrogea, over 500. On January 7, they revolved at a breakneck speed. Maximum of 731 megawatts per hour was recorded at 9:30 in the morning. It’s a real record considering that in a typical day, when the wind blows with 7-8 m/s, wind turbines can produce 150-250 MWh, which is 3 times less than the value recorded on Saturday. Green energy produced by wind would be enough for a big city like Constanţa and Iaşi. In Romania, are installed in more than a 1,000 currently producing 3% of total energy. Investors in this area want to double the number of turbines by the end of 2012. Since Hidroelectrica is low on water, wind energy was a perfect match. It can be seen on the above figure that 19 nights since December Hidroelectrica stopped producing hinge capacity in the 00:00 – 07:00 interval and kept its water for day prices on the day ahead market. The following thing happened: Hidroelectrica kept its water reserve for the day prices and wind energy took the place for the night production. I think Hidroelectrica fount its pair. As can be seen in the chart, wind energy production has exceeded hydropower production in the time slot of 2-10 pm. The largest amount of energy was produced in coal power plants that provide currently about 40% of national energy consumption. National Meteorology Administration (ANM) announced today a warning for strong winds, especially in southern counties of Romania.Eng. Paul Keisch Page 2
