The integration level of wind power into the grid system over the world has been growing at a very fast rate in the last few years and is still keeping this pace. In the future, wind power is expected to be at least comparable to the conventional power generation systems. Large-scale wind farms will need to be integrated into traditional power grid systems, creating the need to establish technical standards to make this integration feasible. This paper covers the performance comparison of a power system with and without the inclusion of a large-scale wind farm. The global system model is presented along to a case of study and the simulation results.
