Developments in renewable integration are continuously changing power system portfolios globally. Higher volatility of the networks might pose a threat to grid stability and thus increase the need for ancillary services. In this paper one such service -the provision of inertial frequency response (in short referred to as inertia) -is analyzed. An additional demand constraint is added to a SMIP (Stochastic Mixed Integer Problem) formulation of an interconnected two-area system consisting of

Environmental stochastic influences -wind curtailment and hydrological inflow -as well as demand fluctuation, forecasting errors and inter-area congestion are incorporated. The potential of cross-border trade of inertial response such as the impact of inertia requirements on traditional scheduling is analyzed and discussed.
