This paper presents the mitigation of switching overvoltages which are generated due to energization procedures in grid-connected to off-shore wind farms. Pre-insertion resistor, controlled switching of circuit breaker, shunt reactor, or surge arresters are used as protective devices to mitigate energization overvoltages. Alternating Transient Program (ATP) is used in this study for simulating of the test power system and the mitigation methods. The comparison between the four mitigation methods in limiting overvoltage in the power system is introduced.
