Abstract [en]

This article deals with the design and usage of a power system stabiliser (PSS) and its impact in the controller of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG). Eigenvalue analysis and numerical simulations are used to design and tune the PSS for different types of input signals, and the suitability of the signals is assessed. The impact of large scale wind farms utilising DFIGs on the oscillations of a conventional power system is compared to the impact of conventional generators in a test power system. The dynamics of a wind farm can be represented by a third order DFIG model and a simple controller model. Modal analysis and dynamic simulations are used to demonstrate the contribution made by the wind farm to power system damping. Numerical simulations show that DFIGs, such as those found in wind farms, are capable of damping oscillations.

Abstract [en]

As the installed capacity of wind power increases across the world, its impact on power systems is becoming more important. To ensure the reliable operation of a power system which is significantly fed by wind power, the dynamics of the system must be understood. The purpose of this study is to analyse the dynamic impact of large-scale wind farms on the stability of a power grid, and to investigate the possibility of improving the stabilisation and damping of the grid by smart control strategies for wind turbines.

When unconventional types of generators are used in a power system, the system behaves differently under abnormal dynamic events. For example, new types of generators such as doubly fed induction generators (DFIGs) cause different modes of oscillation in the system. In order to damp oscillations in the system, it is necessary to understand the equipment causing these oscillations, and the methods of optimally damping the oscillations.

Large power oscillations can occur in a power system as a result of disturbances. Ordinarily these oscillations are slow and, in principle, it is possible to damp them with the help of wind power. This suggests the use of a power oscillation damping (POD) controller for a DFIG, similar to a power system stabiliser (PSS) for a synchronous generator. To demonstrate this concept, we design PODs for DFIGs in a wind farm.

Voltage stability is another important aspect of the safe operation of a power system. It has been shown that the voltage stability of a power system is affected by induction generators and also DFIGs. The voltage stability must therefore also be analysed in order to guard against a power system collapse.

In this study we develop models and control strategies for large wind farms comprising DFIGs, and study the impact of the wind farms on power systems. The design of multiple PODs in a wind farm is performed using linear matrix inequalities (LMIs), and the impact of the wind turbines is investigated through the use of linear and dynamic simulations. It has been demonstrated that DFIGs can be used for damping oscillations, and that they can also improve the critical clearing time of some faults. However, they may have an adverse impact on power systems after large voltage disturbances.
