The size and number of wind farms contributing to the energy production is continuously growing. The rating of wind turbines has increased from less than 1 MW a few years ago to 2- to 3-MW being installed today with 5-MW machines under development. The interaction of the wind farm, reactive power compensators, and the associated power network is being investigated. Because the loads and the wind farms' output fluctuate during the day, the use of reactive power compensation is ideal for the power system network. The purpose of this study is to provide wind farm developers and interested researchers with some valuable insights into the reactive power compensation techniques for wind farm power systems.
