Behavior of DFIG Wind Turbines with Crowbar Protection under Short Circuit

  title={Behavior of DFIG Wind Turbines with Crowbar Protection under Short Circuit},
  author={Omar Noureldeen},
Doubly Fed Induction Generators DFIG are nowadays widely used in variable speed wind power plants. The dynamic interaction between variable speed DFIG wind turbines and the power system which is subjected to disturbances, such as short circuit faults, is an important issue. The ability of the wind power plant to stay connected to the grid during disturbances is important to avoid a cascading effect due to lack of power. This paper investigates the impact of fault ride through on the stability… Expand
