Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

This project presents a holistic wind farm control approach that enables wind power plant to provide the full range of ancillary services including synthetic inertia at the wind farm level rather than single turbine level. In order to detect a power system event and select the magnitude of the service provision from the wind farm, a fully instrumented small/medium generator is used. By slaving the wind farm output to the generator natural response during power system events, the wind farm is able to provide a stable scaled-up range of ancillary services without relying in delayed or noisy grid frequency measurements.
