Abstract

This paper presents the status of the ongoing work in IEC Technical Committee 88 Working Group 27 (TC88 WG27) developing a standard IEC 61400-27 for “Electrical simulation models for wind power generation”. The purpose of this standardization work is to define generic simulation models for wind turbines (part 1) and wind power plants (part 2), which are intended for short-term power system stability analyses. WG27 submitted the first CD of Part 1 in December 2012. The CD describes generic wind turbine models and a procedure for validation of wind turbine models. The generic model description consists of a general model structure intending to cover existing as well as future types of wind turbines, and specific fundamental frequency positive sequence models for the four wind turbine types which are widely used today. The validation procedure can be applied to the generic models specified in the standard, or to manufacturer specific fundamental frequency models. The paper will provide a general description of the wind turbine models, a more detailed description of type 4 models, a description of the validation procedure and finally a validation example. Part 2 is in an early stage of development. IEC has approved the New Work Item Proposal (NWIP) of part 2, and this work has officially started 1 October 2012.
