For this review we have chosen to concentrate on recent progress concerning the model atmosphere analysis of stellar winds in central stars of planetary nebulae (CSPNs). Since there is another review in these proceedings (by W.R. Hamann) devoted specifically to Wolf-Rayet type CSPNs, we will not consider them here. The reader interested in recent work on windless model atmospheres applied to CSPNs is referred to reviews by Napiwotzki (1995) and Werner et al. (1996). There is also an interesting paper by Werner (1996) on the Balmer line problem.
