|INFLUENCE ANALYSIS OF SMALL REPOWERED WIND POWER PLANTS ON THE RELIABILITY OF THE LOCAL GRID|
|GRZEGORZ BARZYK, MIROSŁAW DOPIERA|
The paper discusses problems of the influence of small wind power plants on the reliability of the local system of electrical power engineering. The authors point out to the necessity of adjusting Polish legislation after joining the European Union in reference to the share of renewed energy sources in the general Polish energy balance and among specific distribution companies. The anticipated change in Polish legal system, referring to the promotion of the renewed energy sources, may contribute to the pace of wind power plant energy development. The expected side effect of the development will be, among others, the wind power plants repowering, connected with the implementation in Poland of the formerly used wind power plants. The authors have estimated the scope of this process in terms of valid procedures and standard technical norms.
