  • Modeling and control of offshore AC hub

    High-voltage direct current (HVDC) grid technology is one technical solution that allows the connection of multiple offshore wind farms to one or more onshore connection points. However, there are a number of technical issues and challenges to be overcome in the construction of HVDC grids. This chapter introduces the AC hub concept and develops different economic functions to evaluate the frequency-cost dependence of AC hub components. It then investigates the control strategy need to operate the system at variable frequency. A standard frequency, 50 Hz or 60 Hz, can be used in an AC hub like an ordinary AC system. The voltage and frequency of an AC hub are established by the voltage-source converters (VSCs) of HVDC links. The AC hub without DC circuit breakers can maintain stability by rescheduling the power through variable frequency operation and reduction of wind power generation through frequency-responsive power reduction control.

  • Wind Power Systems

    This chapter is devoted to wind power. Wind turbines have become the most cost-effective renewable energy systems available today and are now completely competitive with essentially all conventional generation systems. The chapter develops techniques for evaluating the power available in the wind and how efficiently it can be captured and converted to electricity in modern wind turbines. Combining wind statistics with turbine characteristics makes it possible to estimate the energy and economics of systems ranging from a single, home-size wind turbine to large wind farms of the sort that are being rapidly built across the United States, Europe, and Asia.

  • Application of Risk Evaluation to Composite Systems with Renewable Sources

    This chapter discusses the application of risk assessment to composite generation and transmission systems with renewable energy sources. Two challenging issues are addressed. The first one is the basic risk evaluation method of a composite system with both wind farms and solar power stations and the second one is the determination of transmission transfer capability required by wind generation integration. Multiple correlations among renewable resources and bus/regional load curves are modeled using the generalized correlation matrix method that can deal with any nonnormal distributions. In the risk evaluation method for composite system with renewable energy sources, modeling the multiple correlations of random variables following nonnormal probability distributions is the key.

  • Optimal Droop Control ofmulti-terminal VSC-HVDCgrids

    High-voltage direct current (HVDC) networks connecting offshore wind power plants to land AC grids exhibit different characteristics, and in particular they offer new control alternatives. In wind power applications, an HVDC transmission results in a multi-terminal direct current (MTDC) network in which its terminals are connected to voltage source converters (VSCs). These converters permit the transfer of power from wind farms to AC grids where the loads are connected. The aim of droop control in these MTDC networks is to ensure a proper power transmission, which implies to maintain the DC voltage almost constant and also to attenuate the effects of changes in the incoming power and faults in the AC grids. Multi-terminal VSC-HVDC networks in the context of wind farms integration exhibits a time-varying behavior as a consequence of changes in the operation conditions. To describe this behavior, a general time-varying description of multi-terminal VSC-HVDC networks has been introduced.

    Wind energy is now the world's fastest growing energy source. In the past 10 years, the global wind energy capacity has increased rapidly. The installed global wind power capacity has grown to 47.317 GW from about 3.5 GW in 1994. The global wind power industry installed 7976 MW in 2004, an increase in total installed generating capacity of 20%. The phenomenal growth in the wind energy industry can be attributed to the concerns to the environmental issues, and research and development of innovative cost-reducing technologies. Denmark is a leading producer of wind turbines in the world, with an almost 40% share of the total worldwide production. The wind energy industry is a giant contributor to the Danish economy. In Denmark, the 3117 MW (in 2004) wind power is supplied by approximately 5500 wind turbines. Individuals and cooperatives own around 80% of the capacity. Denmark will increase the percentage of energy produced from wind to 25% by 2008, and aims for a 50% wind share of energ production by 2025. Wind technology has improved significantly over the past two decades, and almost all of the aspects related to the wind energy technology are still under active research and development. However, this monograph will introduce some basics of the electrical and power electronic aspects involved with modern wind generation systems, including modern power electronics and converters, electric generation and conversion systems for both fixed speed and variable speed systems, control techniques for wind turbines, configurations of wind farms, and the issues of integrating wind turbines into power systems.

    Wind power penetration is rapidly increasing in today's energy generation industry. In particular, the doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) has become a very popular option in wind farms, due to its cost advantage compared with fully rated converter-based systems. Wind farms are frequently located in remote areas, far from the bulk of electric power users, and require long transmission lines to connect to the grid. Series capacitive compensation of DFIG-based wind farm is an economical way to increase the power transfer capability of the transmission line connecting the wind farm to the grid. For example, a study performed by ABB reveals that increasing the power transfer capability of an existing transmission line from 1300 MW to 2000 MW using series compensation is 90% less expensive than building a new transmission line. However, a factor hindering the extensive use of series capacitive compensation is the potential risk of subsynchronous resonance (SSR). The SSR is a condition w ere the wind farm exchanges energy with the electric network, to which it is connected, at one or more natural frequencies of the electric or mechanical part of the combined system, comprising the wind farm and the network, and the frequency of the exchanged energy is below the fundamental frequency of the system. This oscillatory phenomenon may cause severe damage in the wind farm, if not prevented. Therefore, this book studies the SSR phenomenon in a capacitive series compensated wind farm. A DFIG-based wind farm, which is connected to a series compensated transmission line, is considered as a case study. The book consists of two main parts: Small-signal modeling of DFIG for SSR analysis: This part presents a step-by-step tutorial on modal analysis of a DFIG-based series compensated wind farm using Matlab/Simulink. The model of the system includes wind turbine aerodynamics, a 6th order induction generator, a 2nd order two-mass shaft system, a 4th order series compensated transmissio line, a 4th order rotor-side converter (RSC) controller and a 4th order grid-side converter (GSC) controller, and a 1st order DC-link model. The relevant modes are identified using participation factor analysis. Definition of the SSR in DFIG-based wind farms: This part mainly focuses on the identification and definition of the main types of SSR that occur in DFIG wind farms, namely: (1) induction generator effect (SSIGE), (2) torsional interactions (SSTI), and (3) control interactions (SSCI).
