This paper presents a dynamic wind power generation model with the Weibull Distribution Function being used to analysis the wind distribution problem. The Monte Carlo simulation method is applied to consider random output of wind power generation. The nodal prices ensure a competitive market and efficient allocation while the access charge allows the transmission provider to recover the full embedded cost of the transmission system. Locational Marginal Prices is used in this paper, using the wind power generation model and a small power system, with different output from the wind generation, the impact on each transmission line will be easier to understand. For example, the tendency of the power flow on each line, the trend of the LMPs, the output changes of each generator with the installed wind generation integrating into electric networks and with congestion on the transmission lines, the above areas will be compared. The IEEE 14 bus system will be used in this paper, and the aim is to maximize the use of wind generation to meet grid the security.
