Low voltage ride through (LVRT) of squirrel cage induction generators in wind farms is challenging due to the large required reactive power after low voltage period. Reactive power compensation with shunt compensation can improve the LVRT capability, but requires a large rating. The alternative use of series compensation is studied. Series compensation is based on increasing the reactive power transfer from the grid, and can by this reduce the required rating of the compensator compared to… CONTINUE READING
