Available transfer capability (ATC) is a key index to manage future transactions between areas in the open access environment. ATC is a probability index because of the uncertainties related to power system operation. On the other hand, the utilization of wind farm with the stochastic nature as an alternative for electric power generation adds a new probabilistic component to the system and emphasizes employing probabilistic methods to calculate transfer capability. Besides the fluctuating nature of wind farms, other factors such as connection bus of wind farm, its capacity, and wind speed regime can create a considerable impact on transfer capability. This paper uses the Monte Carlo simulation to produce system states and optimal power flow to calculate transfer capability considering operating limits of generating units, voltage and thermal limits. Case studies with the IEEE reliability test system (RTS) discuss about the impact of the mentioned factors on transfer capability.
