This paper introduces the power quality issues of wind power installations in a historic perspective, as the development from a few small wind turbines connected directly to the low voltage grid, to the present system with high penetration on the medium voltage distribution grids and two large offshore wind farms connected at transmission level. In this perspective, the power quality issues are divided into local issues particularly related to the voltage quality in the distribution systems and global issues related to the power system control and stability. Power quality characteristics of wind turbines and wind farms are described according to national and international standards, and measurements from wind farms are presented.
