This paper presents modeling and impact analysis of wind farms in Jeju island power system, which is made of wind farms, a current source-type high-voltage, direct current (HVDC) system, and thermal power plants. In this paper, four kinds of major components are modeled: a total of 88 MW wind farms, a 300 MW HVDC system, thermal power plants, and the Jeju power system load. To analyze the impact of the wind power generation to the Jeju power system, simulation is carried out for two case studies by using the PSCAD/EMTDC program. One is for the steady-state operation under different wind speed, and the other is for the transient-state operation when all wind farms are disconnected suddenly from the Jeju power grid due to the wind speed higher than the rated value. These comparative studies have been effective in accessing the impact of wind power generation on the Jeju island power system stability.
