Ride through Solutions for Doubly-Fed Induction Generators using D-STATCOM
A general practice to protect the power electronics converters nowadays is to disconnect the DFIG (Doubly-fed Induction Generator) wind generator from the grid or use crowbar arrangements in case of voltage dip during a fault. It takes some time to reconnect the generator back to the grid. Disconnection of such a large power can severally affect power system operation during the fault and post-fault conditions. In this paper the behaviour of DFIG is investigated, when a D-STATCOM (Distribution Static Compensator) is used to provide low voltage ride through capability.
