This paper investigates the impact of high levels of penetration of wind power generation in the problem of transient stability of power systems. The investigation takes into account the stability issues related to the disconnection of wind power plants due to violation of voltage limits defined by the low-voltage ride-through curve. Different levels of penetration are investigated, starting at 10.59% for wind power plants based on types 1, 2, 3 and 4 wind turbine generators, until 75.24% for those based on type 3. Simulation results show that the secure power system operation can be maintained in most of the situations, from the point of view of transient stability, for the crescent penetration of wind power plants.
