Simulations of switching transients were carried out in EMTP-RV. Overvoltages in offshore wind farms ranged from temporary over voltages to very fast front transients. Transient Recovery Voltages of the offshore circuit breakers exceeded IEC 62271 requirements in some situations. The disconnection of an array produced the most severe overvoltages, exceeding IEC 60071 requirements.
