The ever increasing level of wind power penetration in Spain has a remarkable impact on power system operation and costs. Furthermore, the Iberian Peninsula Power System is considered to be a weak systems. With a weak interconnections, wind power fluctuations could affect the security, reliability and stability of power system. There are times when a combination of several events or several actions taken (coincidence or coordinated) may lead to the worst condition of power system. An evolution of procedures and regulations related to power system have been performed and developed by Spanish Transmission System Operator (TSO) to tackle these extreme events; thus, improving the overall wind power integration. This paper analyzes the wind power events and the evolution of procedures during past several years implemented by Spanish TSO. Events are analyzed from TSO perspective as well as from the wind farm and wind turbines point aspects. Operational decisions and techniques developed and performed by Spanish TSO to resolve these events are also described in this paper. © 2012 IEEE.
