In this paper an isolated two area restructured power system with thermal-thermal non reheat unit has been considered with and without wind power connectivity for the visualization of grid frequency fluctuations. All the generators are considered working under automatic generation control mode under the bilateral market to meet the load demand. Results for the local load variation of 20% with and without wind power fluctuations are represented. It has been observed that the peak overshoots and settling time for the frequency is more during the wind power connectivity with grid. From the literature it is realized that battery energy storage (BES) or electrical vehicle (EV) is the best technology to overcome this problem.
