Abstract

Variable speed wind turbine with full scale converter or so-called type-D wind turbine generator worldwide installation has been significantly increased in the last few years. Voltage Swell in the grid side may cause the wind turbine to be disconnected from the grid. In this paper, STATCOM is applied to improve the high voltage ride through capability of type-D wind turbine during voltage swell in the grid side. Simulation is carried out using MATLAB/Simulink software. Results show that STATCOM can significantly improve the high voltage ride through (HVRT) capability of type-D wind turbine and prevents it from being disconnected from the grid during certain level of voltage swell in the grid side.
