Abstract

A reduced grid model of a transmission system with
a number of central power plants, consumption centers, local
wind turbines and a large offshore wind farm is developed and
implemented in the simulation tool PowerFactory (DIgSILENT).
The reduced grid model is given by Energinet.dk, Transmission
System Operator of Denmark (TSO) for Natural Gas and
Electricity, to the Danish Universities and the Risø National
Laboratory. Its intended usage is education and studying of
interaction between electricity-producing wind turbines and a
realistic transmission system. Focus in these studies is on voltage
stability issues and on the ride-through capability of different
wind turbine concepts, equipped with advanced controllers,
developed by the Risø National Laboratory.
