Abstract

The interaction between bulk windfarm generation and conventional generation and its influence on network dynamic characteristics are investigated. A simple three-generator system having characteristics that may be considered representative of the major areas of the UK network is used for the dynamic studies. Time response simulation and eigenvalue analysis are used to establish basic transient and dynamic stability characteristics. The wind generation is provided either by windfarms based on Fixed Speed Induction Generators (FSIGs) or Doubly Fed Induction Generators (DFIGs). In addition, in order to provide a base-line, against which windfarm influence on network dynamics can be judged, the case where the power is provided only by conventional synchronous generation is also considered.
