The use of wind energy is increased due to the high demand for sustainable energy. The penetration of wind energy in electrical networks might have several effects on load flow and power system stability. In this research, the transient stability of the IEEE 9-Bus system integrated with Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) is analyzed. Additionally, different penetration levels of a wind farm are considered. With a 5% penetration of wind energy, the maximum power angle of the synchronous generator is around 129 deg, which is quite similar to the existing system. In contrast, the power angle increases to 140 deg after adding more wind turbines with 15% wind farm penetration. Then, the system loses stability with a 25% penetration of wind energy. The results indicate that the high penetration of wind energy has a destabilizing impact on the studied network. Moreover, the location of the wind farm affects transient stability. This research intends to contribute towards assessing the stability of the power system integrated DFIG. Hence, this study will support the increase of using wind energy in power systems rather than conventional power plants and evaluate the stability to enable the reliability of alternative energy sources in the grid.
