This work considers the use of wind turbines for aiding up-regulation of an electrical grid, by employing temporary overproduction with respect to available power. We present a simple model describing a turbine, and show how the possible period of overproduction can be maximized by solving a series of convex problems, where the load is distributed among several turbines in a farm. Thereafter, we present an optimization scheme that guarantees a lower limit for the overproduction period and subsequently propose an adaptive implementation that is robust against parameter uncertainties.
