Wind generation peculiarities introduce new uncertainty factors in the operation of electric power systems. This paper tries to clarify this situation, remarking the main effects involved, reviewing the current state of wind generation technologies, and analyzing the solutions that can be applied. It is shown how the capabilities of most current technologies of variable speed wind turbine generation systems can make compatible a suitable operation of the power system with a high level of wind generation penetration.
