  4. Abstract:
  5. For distribution grids connected wind power generation, voltage quality is an important issue for the system planning purpose. The operation of wind turbines in the distribution networks may affect the voltage quality offered to the consumers. One of the most important considerations is the effect on the voltage profile, i.e. the induced slow voltage variations, which are the subject of this paper. The wind turbines can be operated in two modes: constant-speed and variable-speed. Each one of these cases has different impact on steady state voltage of distribution grids. For evaluation of these impacts, we have simulated SCIG generator that works in constant-speed operation and DFIG generator that is used in a variable-speed turbine. We have used a simulation program of PSCAD/EMTDC to investigate the impact of these turbines on a distribution grid
