  • Shekh Kulsum Almas1 Nagendra Singh2


Wind energy has become more popular and center of attention for every country because it reduces the environmental impact as compare to conventional power plants like diesel and thermal.  Wind energy is bio-friendly, but the major problem is the continuous fluctuation, to reduce this problem different kinds of induction generators has to introduce.Due to the load in the electricity grid, it results in various types power quality issues. This paper presents a briefdiscussion of various power quality problems associated with the grid when connected to wind power plant and also focus on static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) which is connected at thepoint of common coupling to reduce the Power quality issues.
