Combining MV laboratory and simulation resources to investigate Fast Transient Phenomena in Wind Cable Systems
Paper in proceedings, 2009
This paper describes an approach of combining Medium Voltage laboratory and simulation resources to investigate fast transient phenomena that occur due to switching operations of feeders and turbines in a wind park. The paper focuses on the verification and calibration of simulation models using experimental results obtained in the Cable System Laboratory at ABB when studying the interaction of different equipments in the wind park such as cables, transformers, and switching apparatus tested with full voltage and realistic cable lengths. After such verification, the model can be confidently used to investigate transient phenomena occurring in larger and more sophisticated systems.
