This paper is concerned with modeling the reliability characteristics in both probability and frequency of large electric utility application wind turbine generators together with their associated utility interface equipment. A computationally efficient algorithm is developed and applied to a wind farm with a special AC/DC/AC interface currently under design. The effects of various wind turbine/interface system component forced outage rates on the expected annual energy output of the farm is examined.
