As the total number of installed wind farms is far from being negligible, an upgrading of their technology is essential to fulfil new interconnection requirements. Power electronics are considered to be a key technology to accomplish this task. In this paper the use of a STATCOM for the improvement of the ride-through capability of fixed-speed wind farms is analyzed. Critical aspects like STATCOM rating and control are analyzed. A modified STATCOM controller is proposed, based on the series… CONTINUE READING
