Abstract

Problem of power quality is quite severe in wind energy conversion systems using induction generators. For power generation from wind induction generator are found to be the most appropriate choice. Major problem is seen in voltage profile and frequency deviations with changing natural conditions such as wind speed and variation in load. The transient response is actually a critical dynamic characteristic of doubly fed induction generator-based wind turbines, especially in the presence of fast transient events, such as, fault in power system. This paper presents a comparative study of stabilizing a DFIG (Doubly Fed Induction Generators) based wind farm using its own frequency converters and using a STATCOM (Static Synchronous Compensator) during wind speed change and grid fault. Simulation results show that for dynamic reactive power compensation, when, STATCOM is a used at a point of interconnection of wind farm and the network, the system absorbs the generated wind reactive power while maintaining its voltage level.
