Abstract:  In this paper, we will introduce the development of wind energy in Taiwan and the policies or subsidies issued by government of Taiwan for development of offshore farm, which includes Formosa Wind Power (FWP), Fuhai Wind Farm (FWF) and Taiwan Power Company (TPC) offshore demonstration sites. Then, we will focus on the IEC 61400-25 which is the communication standard for control and monitoring of wind turbines. The information models and information exchange model are used to describe the services provided by the wind power plant. The mapping from the models to the communication profiles and the condition in Taiwan are then illustrated.

Keywords: Wind power plants, IEC 61400-25, wind turbine, communication protocol, information model
