HARMONICS ANALYSIS FOR WIND POWER SYSTEM
This paper discusses the modeling of linear and nonlinear load used in wind power plant.Harmonis analysis of the wind farm system is essential to study the behavior of equipments connected in the non sinusoidal system environment for designing and optimal location of STATCOM.Simulation models are developed for linear and nonlinear load. Analysis of voltage and current harmonics is performed for these loads individually. Wind turbine connected to synchronous generator is modelled using PSCAD simulation software to analyse the said issues where STATCOM is introduced as an active voltage and reactive power supporter to increase the power system stability. STATCOM can significantly mitigate the harmonis issues.STATCOM unit is developed to inject reactive power for mitigation of harmonis issues and to get stable grid operation.
