Wind Farm Protection Systems: State of the Art and Challenges

         [CENTER]Owing to the rapid increase of the global population and their energy needs, traditional means to satisfy the burgeoning energy demands need careful reevaluation.

Among these resources, wind electric conversion systems have emerged as the leader at the present time.
