A run for increasing the integration of renewable energy sources in the electricity network has been seen in recent years because of the big concern about environmental issues and pollution from controllable power units. This paper aims to give a general overview of the concept of ramp rate limitation and its principal applications in the literature regarding the field of control strategies, which deal with smoothing the wind power output. Wind power is one of the most-used renewable energy sources, and the objective of limiting the ramp rate of the power output is to produce more stable power. The studies of ramp rate limitation applied in wind power production deal with the definition and detection of this phenomenon in the real data, the methodologies used to forecast it, its application for managing grids and microgrids, the different actions aimed at physically implementing the restriction, and some of the grid code requirements used in different nations.
