Because of the bad environment of wind farms in the far -reaching sea, the cost of power collector system is high. The contradiction between economy and reliability of the power collector system planning is particularly prominent. According to the particularity of the wind farm in the far-reaching sea and the demand of the power collector system on higher reliability, this paper proposes the definition of topological redundancy of the power collector system and develops a multi-objective

Taking a large-scale offshore wind farm as an example, based on the topological redundancy assessment, the topology of its power collector system is optimized from the perspective of life cycle cost. The results show that, although the initial cost of the optimal redundancy topology is slightly higher than that of the radial structure, the advantage of life cycle cost after 8 years of operations is obvious, which can meet the actual engineering requirements of the power collector system for the wind farm in the far-reaching sea.
