Abstract: As wind generation begins to contribute significantly to power systems, the need arises to assess the impact of this new source of variable generation on the stability of the system. This work provides a detailed methodology to assess the impact of wind generation on the voltage stability of a power system. It will also demonstrate the value of using time-series AC power flow analysis techniques in assessing the behavior of a power system. Traditional methods are insufficient in describing the nature of wind for steady-state analyses and as such a new methodology is presented to address this issue. Using this methodology, this paper will show how the voltage stability margin of the power system can be increased through the proper implementation of voltage control strategies in wind turbines.
