The majority of the fixed-speed wind turbines are equipped with squirrel-cage induction generators (IG) and ac-connected to the power system. During a fault in power system, voltage and rotor speed instability may occur, especially when the strength of the system compared to the power delivered by the IG is relatively low. This paper investigates a new method for improving the transient stability of power systems equipped with squirrel cage IGs. For stability improvement, the unique property of… CONTINUE READING
