    This thesis investigates on various levels the technical impact of wind power on a power system. The first part develops detailed dynamic models of wind turbines or farms in software dedicated to power system simulation. These models are used to assess the impact of wind speed or power grid disturbances. The models are a suitable tool to investigate the turbine's ability to provide 'ancillary services', i.e. voltage control or other types of grid support, and to assess the impact of adapting grid connection requirements specifically for wind turbines. The second part quantifies the hourly and daily power output fluctuations of an aggregated wind park for the specific case study of the Belgian control zone, for various scenarios. Furthermore, the potential contribution to the abatement of carbon dioxide emissions by the total power generation park is assessed. The final part presents the results of a multidisciplinary study with regard to optimal offshore wind developments in the Belgian Continental Shelf, including aspects with regard to seabed properties, wind resources, turbine types and power system availability.
