Abstract

Conforming to harmonic emission standards (such as IEEE 519 or G5/4) and grid codes is a requirement for wind farm commissioning.
This project has two main objectives:
1) The first objective is to analyse the generation and aggregation properties of harmonic currents in wind farms such that realistic estimates of harmonic emissions can be made.
2) The second objective is to introduce active filter functionality into wind turbine converters for reducing the overall harmonic emissions at the point of connection to the grid. The solutions proposed by this project will help reduce developmental and capital expenditure when designing a wind farm, further securing the competitiveness of wind energy.
