Fault simulation of wind turbines using commercial simulation tools
Conference contribution, 2005
This paper compares the commercial simulation tools: PSCAD, PowerFactory, Simpow and PSS/E for analysing fault sequences defined in the Danish grid code requirements for wind turbines connected to a voltage level below 100 kV. Both symmetrical and unsymmetrical faults are analysed. The deviations and the reasons for the deviations between the tools are stated. The simulation models are implemented using the built-in library components of the simulation tools with exception of the mechanical drive-train model which had to be user-modelled in PowerFactory and PSS/E.
