One of the main focus in integrating large scale wind power plant is how to maintain voltage stability under different power injection from wind farm. In this paper, effects of large-scale wind power plants on voltage profile of power system is investigated. Practical test system of South-West Sulawesi, Indonesia with integration of two large scale wind power plants are considered. It was monitored that the increasing wind enhanced the voltage profile of the system. Impacts of wind power integration on power system voltage profile were investigated in this paper. Probability analaysis based on MCS were conduted to observe the impacts of uncertain power injection from wind farm on voltage fluctuation. It was clearly monitored that the probability distribution of bus voltage varied accordingly depending to location and capacity of wind farm. It was also monitored that enhancement of voltage profiles increased in proportion with power injection from wind farm. Thus, having more power production from wind farm results in better loadability and eventually improved voltage stability condition of power system as shown in bus 31 (the voltage magnitude increased from 0.942 to 0.952 pu).
