Specifics of integration of wind power plants into the Croatian transmission network

Applied Energy, 2013, vol. 101, issue C, 142-150
Increasing number and capacity of wind turbines have overgrown connection to the distribution network. Considerable wind power plant installed capacity makes their connection to the transmission network a common practice today. However, large scale wind power integration requires increase in transmission network capacity. The problem with transmission network capacity investments is that they will be fully utilized only on rare occasions. This makes the investments in power lines reinforcement economically questionable. The transmission network capacity problems get even worse when several large wind power plants with simultaneous peaks in production are connected to the transmission network in the same node.
