The recent past has witnessed a rising demand of electric energy. The near future will see depletion in the fossil fuels like the coal, diesel and the petrol reserves, so emphasis has to be given on the renewable energy sources. Wind Energy has proven to be a significant option for the present energy resources. There is need for more analysis in the Wind energy sector so that it can be more reliable and efficient. In this research a SCIG (Squirrel Cage Induction Generator) based Wind Farm was considered for analysis like Load Flow Analysis, Active Power at various Wind speeds, Short Circuit Analysis and Reactive Power Analysis and an effort has been made to demonstrate the capabilities of the SCIG based Wind Farm. The simulation studies were carried out in ETAP (Electrical Transient Analyzer Program) and most of the results were compared with the theoretical values. The results were fruitful to prove the future of Wind energy in SCIG type machines.
