The construction and installation of high-power wind farms triggers a number of problems related to the compensation of HV cable lines exporting power from a wind farm, and to the choice of compensation devices. The article describes problems that occur when wind farms are connected to the power system with a 110 kV line, characterizes the devices determining the reactive power balance. Two reactive power compensation systems FSR and STATCOM were also analyzed for minimizing the costs of compensation systems.
