Variable speed, grid connected, wind turbines open new possibilities for voltage control, because they use electronic converters, which may regulate the reactive power interchange with the grid. This paper proposes two voltage control schemes for variable speed wind turbines with double-fed...
The paper describes a method for the reliability and safety assessment of wind turbine control and protection systems. This enables the qualitative and quantitative reliability analysis of these systems and calculates an appropriate set of reliability indices. The method for the probabilistic...
A prototype of the electrical part of a variable speed wind turbine is considered, equipped with a permanent-magnet synchronous generator. The modelling of the generator and power electronics interface is checked with measurements realized in the prototype, under both steady-state and dynamic...
The technology associated with offshore wind farms is discussed in detail. First, the various offshore wind turbines are reviewed and the factors influencing their characteristics are outlined in comparison with their onshore counterparts. This overview serves as a basis for the discussion that...
A specific wind turbine (WT) generation scheme is used and a control strategy is studied, not only to increase the efficiency of the WT but also to limit the influence on the alternating current (AC) distribution grid. The system is a variable-speed wind-energy conversion scheme, including a...
This paper analyses the repercussions from the connection of Wind Parks on the operation of weak electricity distribution systems, based on simulation results. Three different cases concerning Fixed Speed Wind Turbines are studied. Also Variable Speed Wind Turbines are examined, using (i),...
