Climate change and limited primary energy resources make China to increase renewable electricity generation to change the coal-dominated situation. China has rich wind power resource and great potential for utilization, nowadays the healthy development of wind power becomes a predominant problem, which will affect the future energy framework of China. Though many factors relate to Chinese wind power, the cooperation between wind generation and power transmission system is a critical one, current situation of out-of-step is caused by the astonished rate that wind generation proceeds as well as relative lag of transmission system in some specific areas, the noncooperation will impedes the rapid growth of domestic wind power industries. Without a robust and well-planned transmission system, wind power can not be consumed on a larger scope. This paper first outlines the current status of wind power and power system of China, and then indicates that unified transmission planning and inter-province/region transmission grid with the help of ultra high voltage (UHV) technique will be beneficial for enlarging the consuming market space and help the rapid and healthy development of China's wind power.
