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.
