Transient Stability Improvement of a FSIG Based Grid Connected wind Farm with the help of a SVC and a STATCOM: A Comparison

Rajiv Singh, Asheesh Kumar Singh, and Ashutosh Kumar Singh

Abstract—The contribution of wind power in conventional generation is increasing rapidly now-a-days. Hence a better understanding of wind power plants is required. But the wind power plants generally containing induction generators exhibit a rather different behavior than the conventional power plants which use synchronous generators. The purpose of this paper is to analyze and study transient stability of a wind farm based on conventional fixed speed Induction generator when it has been integrated with a weak grid. A comparative analysis of the transient stability improvement of a FSIG wind plant has been done, when it is supported with FACTS like S.V.C and STATCOM of equal ratings. Single case of transient condition i.e. a three phase fault has been studied by simulation.

Index Terms—Wind farm, weak grids, fixed speed induction generator (the squirrel cage induction generator), S.V.C,STATCOM.
