Abstract

This paper analyzes voltage and reactive power in a wind farm in dependence on switchable shunt and tap-changer settings in connection with the control ranges of flexible reactive power sources. Attention is paid to their interdependent effects on central control variables, such as voltage in the collection grid, reactive power exported to the grid and internal active power losses. An aggregated steady-state model of an offshore wind farm is presented and a reduced mathematical representation suitable for symbolic analysis is developed. A coordination scheme is proposed to coordinate fast continuous control inputs with slow tap-changing devices using a short-term prediction. The proposed scheme is aimed at balancing cost factors such as wear of switching components, active power loss within the wind farm and STATCOM capacity.
