According to the new grid codes, wind parks must operate similar to other conventional power plants. Offshore wind parks are connected to the main grid with long cables and reactive power management is a big concern to the operators in the changing wind power conditions. This paper addresses the optimal reactive power dispatch (ORPD), which is a mixed-integer nonlinear optimization problem. The integer variables in ORPD are tap positions of the transformers, switching of cables and switched… CONTINUE READING
