  • In this paper, an approach is presented to calculate the reserve capacity of Pump- Hydro Combined Energy Storage (PHCES) integrated with wind generation. The proposed approach utilizes Monte Carlo methods to obtain all the reasonable capacity of PHCES based on the power system reliability requirement. The pumping and hydro period of PHCES will be taken into consideration to estimate the reliability of wind power generation with PHCES. Finally this approach is applied in a RBTS system to calculate the minimum capacity of PHCES.
