Introduction
To meet the increasing demand for electrical energy, the estimated need of new generating capacity to the Sri Lankan power system is over 4400 MW in next 15 years (Ceylon Electricity Board, 2003; Ceylon Electricity Board, 2005). Studies have revealed that wind is the most promising option of the available renewable sources for grid connected power generation in Sri Lanka other than the conventional larger generating stations. Wind energy resource assessment study carried out in 2002 has confirmed the availability of 20,000 MW of wind resources in north- estern coastal region from Kalpitiya Peninsular to Mannar Island, Jafna Peninsular and the Central Highlands. However not enough studies are available to assess the transmission grid accessibility of these wind resources. And also no system studies are carried out on routine basis for transmission connection proposal for nondispatchable power including the large scale integration of wind power. However the studies associated with large scale integration of wind power are less complication than that of the distributed power generation. Yet dynamic stability is the concerning issue due to the intermittency of the wind power availability and also due to the limitations of supporting the fault current by wind generators.
