Integration of renewable energy sources (RES) causes imbalances in the power system, because of their variable generation and stochastic nature of the source. Photovoltaic (PV) and wind power plants (WPP) are dominant RES in the region of Southeast Europe. This paper is analyzing the impact of RES on frequency regulation reserves in North Macedonia. There are and will be a high increase of installed PV capacity in the power system that will have impact on imbalances and frequency regulation reserves. Тhe methodology for the assessment of RES impact on frequency regulation reserves is based on the data available for the authors for the years 2015 and 2016, about hourly deviations (imbalances) of PV, WPP and load. According to these data necessary frequency regulation reserves capacities are calculated for the years 2023 and 2025. The results and conclusion are presented at the end of the paper.
