Grid integration of Renewable Energy (RE) at large scale poses vast majority of challenges to secure and stable operation of Power System. This paper presents the challenge of short circuit power and primary voltage control of wind integrated power system where majority of conventional generators are replaced by wind generators. The impact of large scale wind integration on fast reactive power support is studied in this paper. Considering both technical and economic aspects, alternatives to address the challenge of dynamic voltage support have also been demonstrated in this paper. A case study of operational and future model of western Danish power system has been presented to support the effectiveness of demonstrated alternatives.
