In this paper, the impacts of large-scale OWPPs penetration on the Turkish power system are addressed. The grid compliance analyses for the large-scale OWPP integration are carried out by using the grid connection criteria defined in the Turkish grid code. PV and QV curves are obtained to assess the effect of OWPP on the static voltage stability limit. Eight scenarios are conducted to analyze the effect of the OWPP on the static and dynamic characteristics of the power grid. To observe the large-scale OWPP impact on the voltage and frequency stability, transient events such as the outage of conventional power plants and three-phase to ground faults are applied. The results of the voltage and frequency stability analysis reveal that the Turkish grid remains stable after the integration of an 1800 MW OWPP. Furthermore, the Turkish system remains stable even in the event of an outage of the international transmission lines to Bulgaria and Greece.
