ABSTRACT
This paper proposes a study of Zafarana Egypt wind farm performance and verification of its equivalent by studying the load power flow and short circuit for both the detailed model and the equivalent model; also it discusses some possible layouts for offshore wind farms and comparison of method of connections. It was noticed that Zafarana wind farm consists of two types of induction machines, fixed speed and variable speed induction machine. Finally optimal capacitor placement is proposed using the simulation program (ETAP).
