Abstract: The dynamic modelling of large (MW) capacity fixed and variable speed induction generator wind turbines is discussed. A reduced order dynamic machine model is derived suitable for modelling both k e d speed and douhly-fed asynchronous generator wind turbines, Control schemes for variable speed turbines. using doubly-fed induction generators (DFIG), are described and simulated. Speed control characteristics and converter protection of the DFIG are implemented in the model. The operation of the models during power system disturbances such as network voltage sags and three-phase faults, as well as the possibility of network voltage instability, are investigated. Simulation results are presented using typical turbine and network data for wind farm installations.

Throughout Europe, plans exist for a considerable increase in power generation from land and offshore wind farms. In the UK alone the Crown Estate has announced IS potential sites offshore, which are each likely to he some 60MW capacity using 2MW induction generator-based wind turbines. Elsewhere in Europe, offshore wind farms of up to IOOOMW capacity are being planned. Initial investigations have shown the importance of electrical stability of both the turbines and the network voltage with the continued increase of the ratio of wind farm generation capacity to the network short circuit level [I, 21. Therefore, suitable models and investigations of dynamic stability of wind farms with the power system are required. The majority of existing land-based UK wind turbines use fixed speed induction generators (FSIG). Investigations with fixed speed turbines have shown that depressed voltage, resulting from short circuits in ]he connecting networks, can lead to generator overspeed if the network short circuit level to generating capacity ratio is too low [3, 41. The induction generators may then depress the voltage further, causing instability due to high levels of reactive power being absorbed. Recently, various papers have presented variable speed wind turbine technologies and models, particularly the doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) [>IO]. In this paper the performance of the FSIG and DFIG wind turbines during power system disturbances is studied. A reduced order dynamic asynchronous generator model is derived and control strategies are modelled for the DFIG wind turbine with simulations illustrating its operation. Application studies are performed to observe the perfomiance of the FSIG and DFIG wind turbines during voltage sags and faults on the network.
