Description (excerpt):

The Eastern Wind Integration and Transmission Study (EWITS) is the culmination of an
effort that spanned two and one-half years. The study team began by modeling wind
resources in a large part of the Eastern Interconnection and finished by conducting a
detailed wind integration study and top-down transmission analysis. The study resulted
in information that can be used to guide future work. A number of other studies have
already examined similar wind integration issues, but the breadth and depth of the
analysis in EWITS is unique. EWITS builds on the work of previous integration studies,
which looked at considerably smaller geographic footprints, focused almost exclusively
on wind integration, and did not include transmission. EWITS took the next step by
expanding the study area and including conceptual transmission overlays.
