The transient behavior of the 2 MW wind turbine under a symmetrical 3-phase voltage dip with zero remaining voltage and unsymmetrical phase-to-phase disturbance with 20 % residual voltage is experimentally studied. The results of the voltage dip tests are compared with simulation study. The comparison of the results shows close agreement; therefore validated simulation model is suitable for performing wind turbine voltage dip test simulations without a need to make the site tests. The developed… Expand
