The objective of the paper is to investigate how the voltage stability of a relatively weak network after a grid fault is affected by the connection of a large wind park. A theoretical discussion of the stationary and dynamic characteristics of the Short Circuit Induction Generator and the Doubly Fed Induction Generator is given. Further, a case study of a wind park connected to the transmission system through an existing regional 132 kV regional distribution line is presented. For the SCIG it is concluded that a stationary torque curve calculated under consideration of the impedance of the network and saturation of the external reactive power compensation units provides a good basis for evaluation of the voltage stability. For the DFIG it is concluded that the speed stability limit is mainly determined by the voltage limitation of the rotor converter
