  • Grid Codes for Wind Power Generation Systems

    The grid codes (GC) are the "laws" for wind turbines to be connected to the grid. It is also the demand to be fulfilled when designing a control strategy for wind power systems (WPS). They are developed by the power system operators in order to smoothen the effects of high wind power penetration on the power system stability and power quality. This chapter introduces the GC for wind power generation system connection in several countries, including the GC for steady‐state operation, as well as the GC under abnormal operations, such as grid faults, unbalanced grid voltage, and harmonic distortions. It gives an overview of the GC for normal and abnormal operations of WPS. The GC for the distributed generation system may be quite different from the centralized WPS and the related GC for distributed generation system are also discussed.

  • PHM of Subsea Cables

    This chapter presents the world's first holistic and prognostic lifetime prediction model that provides an accurate forecast on cable health, which is vital for subsea cable asset management and planning. The current state‐of‐the‐art monitoring systems that focus on internal failures use online partial discharge monitoring, and 30% of subsea cable failure modes are informed by these systems. The chapter reviews the relevant test standards for qualifying the subsea cables as well as maintainability of cables. Cable users have few options for assessing the remaining useful life (RUL) of subsea cables by effective monitoring and prediction. A prognostics and health management (PHM) solution to monitoring subsea cable degradation can ensure that current and future energy assets are maintained in a cost‐effective manner. The chapter discusses the most important challenge for developing a PHM system: the lack of data and data‐gathering techniques, and possible resolutions.

  • Overview of High‐voltage Converters

    A large number of multilevel converters can be found on the generation side, transmission side, and distribution side of a smart grid. In order to propose the architecture of a multi‐terminal high‐voltage converter, this chapter reviews the development of a high‐voltage high‐power converter. It introduces several typical multilevel converter sand common control schemes for multilevel converters. The chapter also reviews the several classic multilevel converter topologies for the understanding of multilevel converter technology. Multilevel converters present great advantages compared with conventional two‐level converters; the improved quality and reduced total harmonic distortion (THD) of the output wave forms make multilevel converters very attractive to the industry. The chapter describes the modulation methods for multilevel converters. It also presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book.

  • 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.

  • Clustering‐based Wind Turbine Generator Model Linearization

    This chapter presents a dynamic discrete time piecewise affine (PWA) model of a wind turbine. This can be used for the advanced optimal control of a wind farm, in approaches such as model predictive control (MPC). The nonlinearity identification is based on a clustering‐based algorithm, which combines clustering, linear identification, and pattern recognition techniques. The chapter focuses on the identification of a PWA wind turbine model for wind farm control applications. The wind turbine model developed by US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) consists of several subsystems, including representations of the aerodynamics, drivetrain, tower, generator, pitch actuator and the wind turbine controller. The chapter also presents a case study of the developed PWA model that was verified by the comparison with the 5‐MW NREL non‐linear wind turbine model. The developed PWA model is suitable for advanced optimal control at wind farm level, including MPC and the linear‐quadratic regulator.

  • State-space representation of HVDC grids

    This chapter describes a methodology to obtain the state-space model of a generic multi-terminal high-voltage direct current grid (HVDC grid). The procedure is based on combining the equations describing the different parts of the transmission grid. The different AC systems connected to the grid through AC/DC voltage source converters (VSC) are considered either input or output power nodes. An averaged model of the converter is considered to represent its behavior inside the HVDC grid. Two case studies are presented to exemplify the procedure to develop HVDC grid model to analyze the grid during normal and AC fault conditions. The proposed model applies for both cases, considering that the controlled variables are different due to the fact that the voltage regulation is performed by grid side converters (GSC) in normal operation and by wind farm converters (WFC) during voltage sags.

  • Control of Wind Farm Clusters

    This chapter introduces the active power control requirements of wind power, and the active power control and automatic generation control (AGC) of wind farm clusters. It also describes the impact of wind power on system voltage stability and the three‐level voltage control of wind farm clusters. The active power control of wind farm clusters is a key technology for the controllable operation of wind farms. Automatic voltage control (AVC) is a part of the automation of electric network management. It tracks and regulates, in real time, the reactive power of generators, adjusts the reactive compensation equipment and the on‐load tap changer (OLTC) of transformers, controls effectively the reactive power flow of regional grids, and improves electricity supply of the grid. By coordination of the wind farm cluster, wind farm groups, and wind farms, a wind farm cluster is able to provide AGC and AVC services.

  • Distributed Model Predictive Active Power Control of Wind Farms

    This chapter explores a distributed model predictive control (D‐MPC) approach for optising active power of a wind farm. The control scheme is based on the fast gradient method via dual decomposition. The developed D‐MPC approach is implemented using the clustering‐based piecewise affine (PWA) wind turbine model. Wind farm control can be implemented either by the utilization of a separate energy storage device or through derated operation of the wind turbines. Model predictive control (MPC) is an effective scheme for multi‐objective wind farm control. The chapter describes the key properties required to apply the fast dual gradient method. Due to their flexible charging and discharging characteristics, energy storage system (ESSs) are considered effective tools to enhance the flexibility and controllability of wind farms. The chapter presents a case study of a wind farm comprising ten 5‐MW wind turbines that is used as the test system.

  • Design and Optimization of MMC‐HVDC Schemes for Offshore Wind‐Power Plant Application

    This chapter provides an overview on how different European regulatory frameworks impact the design optimization and ownership of HVDC schemes used for the export of offshore wind energy to the mainland. Main components of the offshore and onshore modular multilevel converter high‐voltage direct current (MMC‐HVDC) converters are presented with a brief introduction to various offshore platform technologies. In Europe, the third legislative package for the internal EU gas and electricity market released by the European Council requires the unbundling of ownership between transmission assets and generation assets. The implementation and adaption of this regulatory framework has resulted in two different European models for the construction and ownership of offshore generation and transmission assets. The choice of HVAC platform location is influenced by several factors: requirements from shipping and aviation authorities; water depth and seabed condition; and ac cable voltage profile and cable losses.

  • Offshore Wind Power Plants (OWPPS)

    This chapter first provides a general overview of different offshore wind power plant (OWPP) designs considering the use of both high-voltage alternating current (HVAC) and high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission links to deliver the generated power. It then focuses on the conventional AC wind power plants, by introducing some possible wind power plant topologies and briefly describing the required technologies that encompasses the collection grid. The chapter also deals with the description of the electrical design methodology performed in the conventional offshore wind power plants. The methodology focuses on explaining in detail the cable selection process and how the technical assessment of an OWPP is performed, considering only the collection grid area. Finally, the chapter presents a short presentation of future OWPPs based on DC technologies, as well as other proposals for AC wind power plants connected to the onshore grid through an HVDC transmission links.
