The increased availability of wind power is beginning to cause utilities problems as engineers attempt to synchronise the power grid. Utilities have tended to ignore the operational aspects of wind power until there are commercial pressures to take positive action. The nature of these pressures may be understood by considering the classic problem of unit commitment.
