Improved grid integration of wind energy systems

The contribution describes the German situation of grid integration of wind energy. Due to a new edition of the renewable energy law some technical requirements must be fulfilled by the wind turbines. These demands and the possibilities and efforts of the technical realization are described based on the existing technology. Then the necessary steps towards an increased power share of wind energy are introduced. This includes the energy storage in power systems and the retrofit of the existing transmission system.
