Abstract

A power system stabilizer (PSS) for a wind turbine employing a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) is presented. It is shown that this PSS can significantly influence the contribution that a DFIG-based wind farm can make to network damping. A simple, generic test network that combines synchronous and wind farm generation is used to demonstrate system performance contributions. The results of both eigenvalue analysis and time response simulation studies are presented to illustrate contributions to network dynamic and transient performance that the DFIG controller with its PSS can make. Performance capabilities superior to those provided by synchronous generation with automatic voltage regulator and PSS control are demonstrated.
