Abstract for: Assessing Asynchronous Policy in the Wind-Power Supply Chain of Brazil

Recently, installed capacity of wind power in Brazil have increased significantly like an alternative to the risks of hydropower associated with high seasonal and climatic variability. In this sense, Brazil must seek to assess if currently installed transmission would be able to handle the load coming from the wind farms. Although, Brazil has a long transmission system suffers from delays in the construction of new transmission lines. These delays in the transmission-infrastructure projects affect the growth of the wind-power supply chain industry. The aims of this paper are to simulate and evaluate the wind-power supply chain performance associated with the insufficient of transmission-infrastructure for learning about the effects of asynchronous energy policy in Brazil. This research develops, validates, and applies a wind-power supply chain modeling based on a dynamic simulation, which support the study. This structured modeling helps explain the potential conflicts between the expansion of renewable energy and the insufficient of transmission-infrastructure that affect the performance of Brazilian energy supply chain in the long-term. Results indicate that the effects of asynchronous policies impact on the wind-power supply chain performance as well as the security of energy.
