TitelCrowbar-less ride through of asymmetrical grid faults with DFIG based WECS
KonferenzIEEE Africon 2017
AbstractDue to the increased renewable power penetration level renewable power plants have to provide low-voltage ridethrough (LVRT) capability with simultaneous dynamic voltage support, to ensure the grid stability during grid faults. Concerning doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind energy conversion systems (WECS) large electromotive forces (EMF) and rotor currents, which may damage the rotor-side converter (RSC), or adversely affect the DFIG’s controllability are induced into the rotor circuit in case of voltage dips. To handle and limit the rotor currents in case of asymmetrical voltage dips without crowbar triggering, a virtual resistance control approach based on the standard dq-control in the synchronous reference frame is discussed. The theoretical results are compared with those of more demanding virtual inductance control. The LVRTcapability is verified with measurement results, recorded during a certification campaign at a 2.1MW WECS concerning the Indian grid code.
