Wind Farms (WF) employing squirrel cage induction generator (SCIG) directly connected to the grid, represent a large percentage of the wind energy conversion systems around the world. In facilities with moderated power generation, the WF are connected through medium voltage (MV) distribution headlines. A situation commonly found in such scheme is that the power generated is comparable to the transport capacity of the grid. This case is known as Wind Farm to Weak Grid Connection, and its main… CONTINUE READING
