Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Voltage source converter interfaced wind turbines connected to weak grids can induce system instability. A state space model is used in this paper to study the stability of large wind farms. Dynamics of the phase locked loop is integrated to the state space model. The advantage of this model is that it allows study the stability of systems with parallel wind turbines. Studies on the dynamic responses of the system show the importance of including phase locked loop as its existence can induce system instability especially under weak network conditions. This model can be used to study the stability of converter interfaced wind farms and helps to design the converter controller to ensure wind farm system stability when connected to weak grids.
