A means of manipulating the power output of an individual wind turbine has been developed at the University of Strathclyde. This model takes into account the wind turbine dynamics. However, in order to enable such a control strategy to provide inertial response, the system needs to be coupled to control systems that monitor a power system. For inertial response, it is important that the wind turbine control strategy be made aware of changes in the power system as quickly as possible such that a change in power output (akin to inertial response) can be delivered in less than 200ms. This work focuses on monitoring power system frequency.
