Short summary
As more electrical energy is generated by wind turbines, older generation technologies such as coal and gas are being displaced. This situation presents a challenge in the sense that the additional services once provided by fossil generators must now be sourced from elsewhere. Our work provides real-world data showing the capabilities of wind generators in providing the specific service of secondary frequency regulation (automatic generation control, AGC).
