Penghu is embarking on an ambitious plan to tackle global warming by controlling all aspects of the island's energy supply. The energy plan looks to tackle the island's dependence on fossil fuels and its carbon emissions via an increased uptake of renewable energy and low carbon usage. It will also help the island develop more and better low carbon technologies that will continue to stimulate economic growth. Among of these technologies, wind power definitely plays the most important role at Penghu Island because of its abundant wind energy resource. In the initial planning phase, additional onshore wind farms with a capacity of more than 100MW would be installed in this island. It would bring a severe challenge to the original power system. Therefore, it is necessary to perform various system simulation analyses, including the computations on steady-state power flows, fault currents, and transient stability. In this paper, the initial planning constructions on these wind farms and system simulation analysis have been performed. The results would provide significant references to the actual Penghu onshore wind farm planning.
