**Modeling of Wind Turbines for Power System Studies
**

Tomas Petru and Torbjörn Thiringer

Abstract—In this paper, the modeling of wind turbines for power system studies is investigated. Complexities of various parts of a wind turbine model, such as aerodynamic conversion, drive train, and generator representation, are analyzed. The results are verified by field measurements made on a stall-regulated fixed-speed wind turbine. The modeling focuses on deriving a representation that is suitable for use in grid simulation programs. Index Terms—Grid interaction, model, modeling, power quality, wind turbine.

I. INTRODUCTION HE number of wind energy installations is rapidly growing worldwide. With increasing wind power production, it is important, especially for grid owners, to predict the grid interaction of wind turbines in advance. Grid simulation packages, like the Power System Simulator for Engineering (PSS/E), which are commonly used for power system behavior studies, usually require reasonably accurate and low-capacity-demanding models of all power system components. The low-capacity demand is necessary with respect to the high number of components used in the system. Models of the new types of generation units, like wind turbines, have to comply with this requirement. There are various simulation packages, which in principle describe a complete wind turbine. However, the turbine description used in such programs is not viable in grid simulations packages due to its high computational burden. It is necessary, therefore, to simplify such a description to a level acceptable for grid simulation programs, which is the intention of this paper. Approaches to simplified aerodynamic modeling of wind turbines have been presented in [1] and [2]. The main idea in these papers is to adjust wind speed data in one point (hub level) by various filters in order to represent the interaction of turbine blades with the wind speed distribution over the rotor swept area. The resulting wind data are then applied to the static power in order to determine the driving torque. curve Descriptions of the drive train also vary considerably; however, rather simplified descriptions dominate completely in the literature since parameters for detailed descriptions are not generally available. Representations of the generator complexity vary considerably in the literature. In [2], no dynamic model is used at all, whereas [3] makes use of a first-order model. In [4], a third-order model is utilized, and in [5], a fifth-order model is employed.

The general trend is that electrical engineers tend to simplify the aerodynamic and mechanical components of the overall model, whereas mechanical engineers tend to overlook electrical performance details of the wind turbine. Verifications of models with practical measurements on wind turbines are rare in the reported literature. Moreover, simulations and measurements of wind turbine responses to grid disturbances have not yet been published. Two cases, where measurements and simulations of the impact by wind turbines during normal operation have been reported, are [6] and [7]. In [6], results have been reported for the determination of flicker impact by a wind turbine for one wind speed, and in [7], fairly good agreement between calculations and measurements is reported for a broad wind speed range using a rather detailed wind turbine model. From a power quality point of view, prediction of voltage fluctuations caused by variable-speed turbines is not of interest since their flicker emission is very low [8]. However, prediction of voltage fluctuations due to fixed-speed turbines is very important since it is often that this contribution sets the installation limits for these turbines [9]. The aim of this paper is to investigate the modeling requirements of a wind turbine for power system studies. The importance of aspects such as complexity of the aerodynamic conversion description, the drive train, and the generator description are investigated. Moreover, our goal is to verify the simulation results through on-site measurements. II. MODELING INTEREST OF WIND TURBINE CONCEPTS Three main types of wind turbines are commonly being installed today. The fixed-speed wind turbines with a generator directly connected to the grid (see Fig. 1) and variable-speed wind turbines with either a slip-ringed induction generator and a converter in the rotor circuit or with a full power converter in the stator circuit (see Fig. 2). The variable-speed turbines are pitch-regulated, whereas the fixed-speed turbines are either stall regulated or active stall regulated. Active stall regulation means that the pitch angle is adjusted slightly at higher wind speeds in order to always obtain a correct power level. A. Steady-State Voltage Level Influence Wind turbines affect the voltage level in the point of common connection (PCC) due to their power production. The active power produced by the turbine increases the voltage, whereas the reactive power can further increase the voltage level or reduce it. The impact on the steady-state voltage level by the fixedspeed wind turbine system with an induction generator directly connected to the grid is predestined and cannot be controlled during the operation. There is a capacitor bank connected at the

the voltage level will increase with increasing -ratio (inductive). it is described how the voltage fluctuations should be evaluated. The system with a full-power converter in the stator circuit will be able to disconnect immediately by just blocking the turn-on pulses for the converter. Simulation Models The fixed-speed systems must incorporate the description of the aerodynamics. This could be of particular interest in the case where there are many turbines connected. D. An to three usually gives a very low steady-state voltage impact. A key dimensionless quantity (short-term flicker severity index) should be determined. For the variable-speed systems.PETRU AND THIRINGER: MODELING OF WIND TURBINES FOR POWER SYSTEM STUDIES 1133 represent the wind field arriving at the turbine. the details of the control and protection of the power electronic converters must be known and implemented in the simulation program. However. which is a grid consisting of with a low mainly cables. the two variable-speed systems will behave differently. This means that these systems can simply be described as active and reactive power sources that are functions of the average wind speed. and the loss of many wind turbines would lead to grid stability problems. As the active power production increases. B. The active-stall regulated systems produce similar rapid power fluctuations to the purely stall-regulated systems since the pitching of the blades are done very slowly. in combination with the grid -ratio (ratio between grid reactance and grid resistance). generator. a short circuit nearby. the rotor windings will be short circuited (in order to protect both the rotor and the converter).

On a grid with a high which is a grid consisting mainly of overhead lines or close to a transformer. and an For variable-speed turbines. provided that the generator. turbine. the voltage will decrease instead [9]. the wind turbine converters can produce any reactive power. the response to minor grid disturbances depends on the details of the control system of the specific wind turbine. If the disturbance will cause too high rotor voltages. Right: System with a full power converter in the stator circuit. Flicker Emission As previous authors [8] have pointed out. On a grid -ratio (resistive). the response to a grid disturbance is mainly governed by the induction generator. In the IEC-standard [11]. it is impossible to construct a generally valid model for handling of grid disturbances for these types of turbines. for instance. wind turbine. Fig. or there can also be minor disturbances. apart from the generator and drive train.6 has been used to represent the resistive grid -ratio of 2. which is typically designed to compensate for the induction machine no-load reactive power consumption. the reactive power is controllable and is usually kept close to zero in order to obtain a power factor of one. 1. there is a need to The response of wind turbines to grid disturbances is also an important issue to be involved in the model. the reactive power consumption rises as well. power production. Grid disturbances can either be of the severe type. . for instance. and other equipment can handle such an operation. The system with a converter in the rotor circuit of a slip-ringed induction machine acts in another way. The other parts (drive train and aerodynamic conversion) are not as important to model in this case. Response to Grid Disturbances Fig. and drive train in order to predict their steady-state impact.

These outcomes. Left: System with a slip-ringed induction generator and a converter in the rotor circuit. This means that the voltage level increases as the power production increases. there is a need to predict the rapid voltage fluctuations caused by fixed-speed stall-regulated turbines while prediction of flicker emission from variable-speed turbines is not of interest. an -ratio of 0.
