Transient and steady state modelling of large MW capacity, induction generator, wind turbines used for offshore wind farms is presented. The possibility of network voltage instability is investigated. Results are presented from simulations using predicted turbine and network data for UK offshore wind farm installations. Possible techniques to improve dynamic stability, applied to both the electrical and mechanical systems of the wind turbine, are discussed.
