Penetration of wind power into weak transmission grids faces specific difficulties due to security constraints. The major issue is the capability of existing transmission grids to securely absorb the wind power. This paper presents some ideas in order to increase the wind power penetration into weak networks by applying new control concepts. It also presents a methodology to assess the impact of the proposed techniques to the wind penetration achieved. The proposed rule is based on the control of the power flow from the windy area through a weak corridor.
