  • Experimental Research on the Influence of Wind Turbine Blade Rotation on the Characteristics of Atmospheric Discharges

    The experimental research, whose most important segments are described in this paper, is one of the first attempts to determine the influence of wind turbine blade rotation on likelihood of getting struck by lightning. The tests were conducted in the high-voltage laboratory, applying the up-and-down method for determination of the 50% flashover standard switching voltage. The impulse voltage waves were applied between the specially de signed arching electrode and the blades of a reduced-size wind turbine model, driven by a frequency controlled motor. Two types of lightning protection systems and the case of absent protection system were examined. According to the theory of similarity this pa per discusses the characteristics of direct atmospheric discharges for the following typical rotational speeds of the wind turbine: w = 0 r/min (when the wind turbine is idle), w = 250 r/min (for the winds of moderate strength), and w = 400 r/min (rated rotor speed).

    To prevent power system blackout following a severe contingency, an emergency control action may be needed. The underfrequency and undervoltage load shedding (UFLS/UVLS) schemes are usually in use in real-world power systems without coordination. This chapter emphasizes the necessity of using both voltage and frequency data, specifically in the presence of high wind power penetration, to develop an effective LS scheme. After a background on the LS problem, the chapter talks about an LS scheme using both voltage and frequency information with the described graphical tool. Then, the application of electromechanical wave propagation for the emergency control issue in a wide- area power system is emphasized. The chapter shows that the voltage and frequency responses may behave in opposite directions following many contingencies.

  • Integrated Planning and Operational Control Of Resilient MEG For Optimal DERs Sizing and Enhanced Dynamic Performance

    In this chapter, an integrated planning and operational control of a microenergy grid (MEG) has been presented to optimally size DERs and to enhance MEG dynamic performance. The design, development, and hardware setup of the proposed MEG have been presented from the planning stage to the operational stage. The planning stage optimizes the size and type of distributed energy resources (DERs) for minimum cost and minimum CO2 emissions. Then, the operational stage evaluates and fine‐tunes the dynamic response. Renewable energy sources and natural‐gas‐based combined heat and power (CHP) are implemented, studied, and integrated into the MEG. A D‐FACTS device, green plug‐energy economizer (GP‐EE) with two DC/AC schemes are proposed and integrated into the MEG. Enhanced heuristic optimization methods can be applied to control the parameter settings of GP‐EE to fine‐tune the system dynamic response. The proposed controller adapts the global control error to increase the energy efficiency and reliability. Power factor improvement, voltage profile enhancement, loss reduction, and power quality improvement have been realized and achieved. The design and development of the MEG with hardware demonstration have been developed at the Energy Safety and Control Laboratory (ESCL), University of Ontario Institute of Technology. The MEG system included implementation of control strategies for DERs and programmable loads at a laboratory scale. A software system was developed to monitor all MEG parameters and to control the various components. Demonstration with digital simulations has been validated with the results showing the effectiveness and the improved performance.

  • Field Oriented Control of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator for use in a Variable Speed Tidal Stream Turbine

    A control scheme for a variable speed tidal stream turbine is proposed. The system consists of a permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) with the stator windings connected to the grid through a frequency converter. This frequency converter consists of two pulse width modulated (PWM) converters connected in a back-to-back configuration with an intermediate DC bus. A field oriented control scheme for this system is presented and simulated in Simulink using the SimPowerSystems Library. It allows the generator side converter to control the speed of the generator in order to maximise the extracted power while the grid side converter can be used to keep the DC link voltage constant and control the active and reactive power delivered to the grid.

  • Mitigation of Fatigue Loads Using Individual Pitch Control of Wind Turbines Based on FAST

    With the increase of wind turbine dimension and capacity, the wind turbine structures are subjected to prominent loads and fatigue which would reduce the lifetime of wind turbines. Individual pitch control (IPC) is used in this paper to attenuate the blade root bending moment and the tilt and yaw moments and fatigue. The loading transfer from rotational coordinate system to the fixed coordinate system of the wind turbine is analyzed. In order to make the simulation results more reliable, the wind turbine code FAST is applied to doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based power system to demonstrate the correctness of individual pitch control strategy. The performance of the proposed control method is tested and compared with that using collective pitch control (CPC), demonstrating the effectiveness of individual pitch control of wind turbines.

  • Chinese Offshore Wind Farm Development and Its Function in Meeting Government Renewable Target

    This paper carries out thorough investigation into the emerging Chinese offshore wind development. References have been made to international experiences (UK in particular) and the previous experiences from on-shore wind development in China to understand the trend and the future of the Chinese offshore wind sector. It summarized that the Chinese offshore wind development has technical and economical difficulties to take off. However, it is certain that the offshore wind will be essential part of Chinese governmental strategy to meet its 2015 and 2020 renewable targets. The paper further points out that the potential of delivering more than 2000MW offshore (including Intertidal wind) by 2015.

  • Study of Distributed Generation System Characteristics and Protective Load Control Strategy

    Due to the smaller inertia feature of a Wind Turbine (WT) involved Distributed Generation System (DGS), the WT's induction generator are more vulnerable to frequency and voltage disturbances. Therefore the study investigates the DGS characteristics respectively from power plants, i. e. WTs and load. Two kinds of wind turbines: Doubly-fed Induction Generator (DFIG) and Fixed-speed Wind Turbine (FSWT) are compared in this study. A conventional power system protective scheme may not response promptly, which could lead an undesired disconnection of WTs for the turbine protection purpose. Consequently a fast protective load control strategy to such a DGS is studied. In order to implement such a strategy a communication system associated with a DGS is configured. With this strategy a precise and prompt load shedding operation can be performed to ensure the stability of a DGS and WTs. The impacts of load characteristics are analyzed and utilized in the fast control strategy. Subsequently a case study is presented to demonstrate the theoretical investigations and analyses.
