Wind power forecasting's (WPF) technical improvements exhibit that the smooth forecasting of wind power is essential in executing operational management like energy balance, grid reliability, scheduling maintenance, and selection of site location for investment. However, there seems to be a lack of detailed work to guide researchers working on WPF applications and technical challenges. In the current study, a significant number of scientific studies have been reviewed and evaluated as references to help and guide researchers working in this field. Detailed content about the development of WPF, power system operation, and sectorial contributions are presented in this article. In power system operation, the operations like day-ahead operation and operation day are expressed in the event of WPF. The contributions and key factors of WPF in the energy sector are listed in trend technologies, employment, marketing, and power plants. Then, requirements and technical challenges affecting WPF are considered in terms of application requirements, regulatory requirements, atmospheric challenges, and operational difficulties. Subsequently, the process applications of WPF are handled to give detailed information for researchers and engineers working in WPF. Lastly, the applications like observing and tracking, technical planning, and investment issues are explained.
