The west coast and islands of Taiwan have abundant wind resource, which offers a great opportunity for large-scale offshore wind power generation. In Taiwan, the first stage of the offshore wind farms at the Jhang-Bin and Penghu areas has been planned. In particular, the Jhang-Bin wind farm will become the first and one of the largest wind farms in Taiwan. Therefore, its impacts on system operation and security have to be investigated and studied in advance. Following a general connection design discussion, this paper is consist of four major system impact analyses: load flow, fault current, voltage variation, and transient stability. Moreover, three types of typical wind turbines have been adopted in this paper in order to compare their performances on the wind farm integration system. From the simulation results, some significant conclusion and recommendations have been extracted, which would contribute to the first offshore wind farm development in Taiwan.
