Online variation of wind turbine controller parameter for mitigation of SSR in DFIG based wind farms
Paper in proceedings, 2017
The aim of this paper is to investigate the risk for Subsynchronous Resonance (SSR) conditions in Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based wind farms connected to series-compensated transmission lines. The well-known IEEE First Benchmark Model for SSR studies is adopted and the impact of the turbine controller parameters on the risk for unstable conditions is analyzed. In particular, it is shown through frequency domain studies that a reduction of the closed-loop bandwidth of the current controller that regulates the rotor current effectively reduces the risk for SSR. Simulation results are presented to validate the theoretical findings.
