The number of full converter wind energy conversion system (FCWECS) connected to existing electricity grids has significantly increased worldwide during the last two decades. One of the common power quality issues associated with wind turbine generator (WTG) is the voltage flicker which can be caused due to wind gust. It is pivotal for the existing or the new construction of the WTG to comply with the power quality standards. Although, with the advance in WTG technology and control systems, the flicker due to wind speed fluctuation can be mitigated, flicker can still be caused as a result of load pulsation such as arc furnaces, resistive welding machines and compressors. In this paper, the near flicker source impact on the connected WTG performance is investigated and the compliance of the WTG with the recent grid codes under such disturbance is highlighted.
