Abstract

This paper presents a Simulink model of a wind power system for the holistic analysis of wind turbine and power grid during grid faults, aiming to investigate wind turbine Fault Ride-Through performance. The model comprises a highly detailed dynamic model of a 2MW wind turbine and a generic electrical network model. The simulation result shows the behaviour of both wind turbine and power grid when grid faults occurs. The impact that a grid fault has on wind turbine components and grid transients is illustrated and discussed.
