Variable-speed wind turbines are increasingly penetrating into the electrical grid, replacing the conventional synchronous-generator-based power plants and thus decreasing the available inertial response for primary frequency stability. This paper offers a deeper understanding of variable-speed wind turbine generators (WTGs) in the context of maximum power point tracking and obtaining primary frequency response. Linearized models have been obtained between the wind velocity and the system… CONTINUE READING
