Abstract

Future wind energy high penetration levels in power systems require robust and practical control algorithms to protect the typical conventional system performance or even improve it. Constructing such feasible control methodologies requires practical, simplified and efficient dynamic simulators for several wind turbines types available in market. This paper offers a procedure to build a simulation tool for modern wind turbines. This simulation box is inspired from the GE 1.5 MW model built in the Simulink library. Three wind turbines types from the top and latest products of three different wind turbines industry tycoons are considered as case studies for the proposed methodology. MATLAB and Simulink are used as simulation environments for the presented experiments.
