Power flow calculation is a basic tool for power systems operation and control. Considering static frequency regulation characteristics of power systems, dynamic power flow (DPF) gives more precise results of system operation with frequency deviation than conventional power flow. The increasing penetration of wind energy into power grid makes it necessary to take wind power into consideration in DPF calculation. The operational traits and frequency regulation characteristics of major types of wind turbines are discussed, including fixed speed wind turbines and variable speed wind turbines with integrated control strategy combining over-speed control and droop control. With the primary frequency regulation characteristics of wind turbines, a simplified DPF algorithm is proposed in this study for power systems integrating wind power generation. The IEEE 30-bus system is modified to verify the proposed method considering different levels of wind power penetration.
