Performance of Wind Farm Employing Type-4 Wind Turbine with D-Statcom

Dipesh Kumar Karmakar, Kapavarapu M R Phani Swaroop, N.G.S Raju


Wind power is environmentally friendly and cost-predictable nature. It is widely recognized as a promising alternative electric power generation source at a time of uncertain fossil fuel costs and concern over the harmful effects of climate change. Various problems arise due to the rapid injection of wind power in the electrical grid, affecting the power quality. Harmonics and various power quality problems like voltage sag and swell are of common occurrence due to the voltage injected by the wind generators in the electrical grid. These may result into severe problems such as system frequency mismatch and change in power line capability. To reduce such problems a distributed static compensator (DSTATCOM) is employed.  The DSTATCOM is an effective way of reducing power quality problems, removing the wind speed fluctuations and improving the transient stability of wind farm. Simulation results show the proposed effectiveness of wind farm stability and power quality. The generating system is modeled and simulated in MATLAB environment using Simulink and Simpower System toolboxes.

Keywords: Wind Farms (WF), Wind Energy, Distributed static compensator (DSTATCOM)
