The article examines the solution of interconnection of wind turbines to park's substation. The technical solution for the substation interconnection with the wind turbines offers a choice between two voltage levels of 20 kV or 33kV. Depending on the choice of one of these levels, the technical solution of reactive power compensation is also influenced. This Article treats also economical costs deriving from use of each of these voltage levels.
