Wind power generation is playing a pivotal role in adopting renewable energy sources in many countries. Over the past decades, we have seen steady growth in wind power generation throughout the world. This article aims to summarize the operation, conversion and integration of the wind power with conventional grid and local microgrids so that it can be a onestop reference for early career researchers. The study is carried out primarily based on the horizontal axis wind turbine and the vertical

On top of that, this paper summarizes the ways of connecting the wind farms with conventional grid and microgrid to portray a clear picture of existing technologies. Section-wise, the prospects and limitations are discussed and opportunities for future technologies are highlighted. It is envisaged that, this paper will help researchers and engineering professionals to grasp the fundamental concepts related to wind power generation concisely and effectively.
