In order to reliably operate the bulk electric grid generators are expected to meet certain reactive power requirements depending on the system they operate in. In the past reactive power requirements were tailored to the capabilities of synchronous generators. Variable generators such as wind and solar plants were in the past small enough relative to the entire system that they were not required to supply voltage support to the grid. As the penetration of renewable resources have grown beyond… CONTINUE READING
