Abstract

High penetration of renewable energy sources poses numerous challenges on stability and security of power systems. Wind power plants (WPPs) of considerable size when connected to a weak grid by long transmission line results in low short circuit ratio at the point of connection. This may result in both transient voltage fluctuations and poor steady-state voltage profile at the point of connection. In this paper, transient and steady-state voltage support from WPPs are investigated. Low voltage ride through capability of WPP is studied for two different control modes namely, V control and Q control, during transient voltage dips. Steady-state analysis is performed for stressed system conditions. Results are validated through simulation in a detailed power system model.
