Summary This paper presents an overview of the variable characteristics of solar power, as well as the accompanying grid performance and operational economics for a system with significant solar generation. The paper will show results of economic operational simulations of a very high solar generation future for the western half of the United States. The evaluated system is subject to significant dynamic operating constraints; and the analytical methods used account for the critical interrelationships between system security, solar variability, and imperfect solar forecasts.
