Abstract

This chapter briefly describes the different types of wind turbines used for offshore wind power generation. AC and DC technologies used for collecting wind power at medium-voltage levels are discussed. Topologies of high-voltage DC networks which are suitable for offshore wind power transmission are also discussed. A case study is given to investigate the use of converters of DC networks to control offshore wind farms with induction generators.
