Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

A coordinated power system stabiliser (PSS) design for wind turbine equipped with doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) is presented in this paper. It is shown that the proposed control scheme enables the optimal performance for both the wind turbine structural loads damping and the power system damping. The interaction between wind turbine controller and PSS is studied by simulation. A holistic model including both the wind turbine and the electric network dynamics is employed for the assessment of controller performance. The influence of PSS control on wind turbine drive-train and tower are demonstrated. A generic network model is used to test the contribution that wind farm can make to the power system damping. It is shown that wind turbine is capable of providing similar damping response as synchronous generator do with acceptable increase of structural loads.
