ABSTRACT
The cooperation of wind farms with the power system require s that they meet the requirements related to reactive power management. In practice, it concerns both generation and production of this power in accordance with the requirements of network operators and EU Regulation 2016/631. The regulatory capacity of wi nd turbine generators is not sufficient to meet these requirements, in particular for farms connected to the power system via a 110 kV cable line with a length of several dozen kilometers. It is required to use various additional devices fixed or variabl e shunt reactor, capacitor batteries, stat ic VAR compensators (SVC). In the article, a compensation quality indicator was defined, by means of which it is possible to assess and select the optimal set of devices supporting the farm's generation and reacti ve power consumption capabilities. Due to the application of multicriteria optimization, this indicator unifies both the technical effectiveness of individual systems and the economies of their use.
