The centralized grid is the main electrical supply to the country. About 80% of the installed generation capacity is fossil fuel fired power plants, though there is increase in share of renewable generation over the years. India has significant wind potential, and a major share in the renewable generation of the country. The energy and carbon footprint sustainability of wind power systems in Indian conditions is the focus of this research. This paper presents a study of large grid connected
