Wind farm outputs have the features of intermittence and variability which impose a significant impact on the operation of power systems. In this paper, Latin hypercube sampling (LHS) and reduction technique is used to simulate the 24h power output of a wind farm. Then a model of unit commitment (UC) with predicted wind power (UCW) is established, and a harmony search (HS) with arithmetic crossover operation (ACHS) is employed for solving this problem. The results are analyzed in detail, which assess the impact of wind power on UC and demonstrate that ACHS is practicable for UCW problem with comparison with other proposed HS methods.
