The injection of wind farm production into a grid, needs optimal strategies for energy transfer management. Usually, the power produced by the wind farms does not fulfil all the grid code requirements. The main problem is generally based on the way to reduce the impacts of power production fluctuations on the grid voltage and its frequency. To solve this problem, some authors suggest the use of an interface such as energy storage devices in order to compensate the wind power fluctuations. In fact, the storage devices installed between the wind farm and the grid can improve the power quality in terms of stability but in other hand the size and the cost of the system can be increased. In this paper, two solutions have been proposed in case the power quality produced by the wind farm is out of the grid code requirements. The improvement of the energy quality of an offshore wind farm without storage and connected to the grid is discussed. The proposed solution is to operate the wind turbines with a reserve of power. To distribute this reserve equitably among wind turbines, a proportional distribution algorithms has been developed. The results obtained show clearly the effectiveness of the strategy.
