Generation of electricity from wind energy is emerging as one of the leading renewable technologies. Electrical energy may be generated over a wide range of operating conditions, particularly if far more than one wind turbine is connected to the network. Low electrical energy production in one part of the wind farm may occur with high production in another part together with highly variable reactive power consumption from the system. A GTO-based Static Var Compensator (GTO-SVC), often called STATCOM, is used in the wind farm Rejsby Hede in Denmark for dymanicc reactive power compensation and voltage limitation in the case of islanding. The paper describes the various steps for implementation of the scheme, gives an overview of the main components of the GTO_SVC and proposes TNA tests which are planned prior to the installation in 1997.
