The performance of various components in a power system, from voltage stability perspective, is highly dependent on the system strength. Voltage stability issues can be caused by integrating a large amount of wind generation into a weak grid. Short circuit ratio (SCR) is often used as an index of the system strength. SCR provides wind plants a reference to properly tune controller settings and coordinate with neighboring plants. The commonly used SCR calculation method does not consider… CONTINUE READING
