GUERRON, Gonzalo; GARCIA, Edwin  and  MONTERO, Andrés. Influence of wind gusts in power quality on wind farms. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2014, vol.5, n.3, pp.25-44. ISSN 1390-6542.

World energy matrix is changing due to the increase of energy consumption in the last years. Installation of unconventional renewable energy plants in many countries has become a solution to this event. Integration of this type of energy to the electric network causes interest in the study of phenomena that affects energy production. This document is a review of concepts and events occurring on energy quality and how they interact in a wind farm. The efficiency of wind turbines is affected by many factors, the most outstanding are: substations activities and weather issues such as wind gusts, which causes variations in the power curve. Constant monitoring on electric systems and data processing offers a high potential in improving the process of production and distribution of energy.
