Wind generation is expected to reach substantially higher levels of penetration in the near future. With the converter interface, the rotor inertia of doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind turbine generator is effectively decoupled from the system, causing a reduction in inertial response. This can be compensated by enabling the DFIG to provide fast frequency response. This paper proposes a quantitative control approach for DFIG to deliver fast frequency response in the inertial… 
Fast Frequency Support From Wind Turbine Generators With Auxiliary Dynamic Demand Control
A dynamic demand control strategy is proposed to coordinate with DFIG to provide adequate inertial response with guaranteed rotor security and to mitigate the potential of the secondary frequency dip and improve the performance of primary frequency control.
A Novel Active Power Control Framework for Wind Turbine Generators to Improve Frequency Response
A novel active power control framework is proposed to enable doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) to participate in frequency regulation and is designed to provide both inertial and primary frequency support considering both underfrequency and overfrequency events.
