Interest in the application of offshore wind farms is increasing due to the superior wind conditions in such locations. Wind power has an inherent characteristic in that the output power fluctuates due to wind velocity change. Leveled power generation is desirable not only for power systems, but also as a power source in a smart grid. If long distance transmission is required, then a dc link will be one solution. This paper treats a wind farm connected to a weak ac system through a dc transmission line with voltage source converters. Power levelling controls in the dc system are proposed and the effects of these controls are analyzed using the ATPDraw5 simulation program.
