Abstract

Wind power is a means of producing efficient, effective and sustainable. In terms of electricity generation, it is one of the streams cleaner, safer and faster to implement and also renewable. But the increase in wind power has an increasing impact on the electricity grid because of the difficulty in predicting the production, the limited capacity of the network, the risk of unwanted disconnections wind farms and degradation of electricity quality.
This paper presents a solution to the optimal active power dispatch problem following the arrival of wind generators on the electrical network. The use of FACTS devices, such as thyristor controlled series compensators (TCSC); the power system can be operated in such a way that the total power production cost is minimized. The Static Compensator (STATCOM) will be also used to improve the power quality of wind generation by maintaining the voltage level.
