Considering the need for greenhouse gas emissions reduction, the power system is facing the additional variability and uncertainty introduced by the generation of renewable energy. Wind farms are important power generation units that produce "clean" energy and induce disturbances to the power system according to the fluctuating nature of the wind that is very difficult to forecast. The power system has to be flexible in order to integrate large amounts of wind power. In this paper several problems are presented, but also advantages of connecting the wind generation unit to the system are shown.
