Grid integration of offshore wind farms

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Offshore wind farms tend to become bigger and far from the onshore point of connection. The developers and the system operators are facing a number of technical, economical, and environmental challenges in transmitting the bulk power developed at these offshore wind farms over long distances. In this Chapter, some of these issues are discussed, giving emphasis to the basic system requirements along with various options for transmission and grid integration.
