In wind integration studies, sub-hourly, load synchronous wind data is often preferable. These datasets can be generated by a hybrid approach, combining hourly data from meteorological models with statistical modelling of the high-frequency ﬂuctuations. This paper presents a method for simulating aggregated intra-hourly wind power ﬂuctuations for a power system, taking into account the time-varying variance seen in measurements. Some key elements in the modelling were transformations to stationarity, the use of frequency domain techniques including a search for appropriate phase angles and an adjustment of the resulting time series in order to get correct hourly means. Generation data from Denmark and Germany with ﬁve and 15-minute temporal resolution were used for training models. It is shown that the distributions, autocorrelations and non-stationarity of simulated deviations from hourly means closely follow those of measurements. Power spectral densities and step change distributions agree well. Of particular importance is that the results are good also when the training and objective power systems are not the same. Because of the low computational cost, the model is advantageous for analysing many different scenarios of future wind deployment.
