Abstract [en]

Wind power systems use the energy in the wind, and with a wind turbine the energy is transferred to mechanical power which in a generator is converted to electric power. The varying wind speed introduces special considerations concerning grid connection and integration into the whole power system. This article gives an overview of these integration challenges and it is mainly focused on wind power as a part of a larger power system.
