Abstract [en]

Wind power often is a source of voltage fluctuations and possible voltage issues are raised when considering interconnecting wind turbines to an electric grid. Also, the power electronics introduced in the wind turbines might insert more fluctuations and different PQ problems. Distributed generation seems to be a good option in order to try to mitigate these problems.

The first goal of the work is to create a model of a small electric grid, using MATLAB/Simulink. The models aims to simulate various DFIG wind turbines coupled to the grid in different conditions of location and wind.

Then, the main objective is to analyze the PQ in the grid with this type of turbine. For this, once the simulations have been done, the results obtained have allowed calculating different indices to study PQ in the model. Afterwards, a comparison of those indices in the different conditions is made.
