Topics involved: Wind Farms in Weak Grids Compensated with STATCOM.Contact person: Marta Molinas (

).Simulation model of a wind farm based on induction generators connected through a weakgrid and compensated with a STATCOM
Develop a simulation model (using Matlab, EMTDC or similar) for a 100 MW wind farm usingsquirrel cage induction generators magnetized with fixed capacitor banks, and connected to thegrid through a weak grid (low short circuit current: strong grid usually gives a short circuit ratio>20, use this assumption).1. Model the STATCOM as a voltage source converter.2. Use decoupled control of active and reactive power for controlling the STATCOM.3. Simulate a short circuit and compare the transient response of the system with and without theSTATCOM. See how much the transient stability margin is improved with the STATCOM and seewhat other beneficial effects the STATCOM has on the system stability.4. Give a generalized expression for the rating of the STATCOM as a function of the systemcharacteristics and contingency level, such as short circuit ratio and voltage sag.
