What is it about?
The objective of this work is to present a methodology to determine the optimal OWF connection point in a power system, with maximum penetration of firm wind power and minimum loss, considering security constraints related to the “” contingency criterion, exchange limits between areas, and a strategy to reduce the number of constraints in the optimization problem.

Why is it important?
The proposed approach can be considered efficient in the search for the optimum point of connection of an OWF to an onshore network, among some regionally close candidate areas, guaranteeing maximum penetration of wind power to the system, respecting the thermal limits of transmission lines and considering the all “N − 1” contingency scenarios. Also, the method proposes to include the analysis of minimum losses in the study, thus ensuring that there is the least possible impact of losses in the operation of the system.
