Abstract:

Grid disturbances, especially grid faults, have very unfavorable effect on the performance of wind turbine based Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG). In this study active and reactive powers control of DFIG with STATCOM has been carried out to improve Fault Ride Through (FRT) capability of a wind turbine. In order to excel improvement of the DFIG behavior under grid fault disturbances, an optimized crowbar protection method is also considered together with STATCOM. The optimized protection crowbar resistance is achieved through Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) algorithm. Simulations results illustrate that an optimized crowbar protection method along with STATCOM has improved the stability of wind farm and provide grid code requirement compared with that of methods without using the optimized crowbar resistance.
