Advances in technology at all levels of the power system enable the integration of wind energy into the emerging smart grid efficiently and reliably. This synergy works both ways. A smart grid will allow connectivity of the wind turbines as intermittent sources of energy, and the advanced wind turbines with power electronics controls and other devices can support a grid with reactive power and protect the equipment during severe grid disturbances. Interconnection of large wind farms with the power grid using such technologies as high-voltage dc (HVDC) and SVC with Energy Storage can add a new degree of control to the power system, mitigate the intermittency of the wind energy production and the impact of electrical disturbances.
