Validation of fixed speed wind turbine dynamic models with measured data
Journal article, 2007
Power system dynamics studies involving fixed-speed wind turbines normally use a wind turbine model consisting of two lumped masses, an elastic coupling and a induction generator model which neglects stator transients. However, validations of this model with measured data are rarely reported in the literature. This paper validates the model using a recorded case obtained in a fixed speed, stall regulated 180 kW wind turbine through a voltage dip. The work analyses the performance of the reduced order induction generator model which neglects stator transients, compared to the detailed induction generator model. It also includes a study of the convenience of representing mechanical damping in the drive train, and an evaluation of the single mass mechanical model.
