An essential reference to the modeling techniques of wind turbine systems for the application of advanced control methods
This book covers the modeling of wind power and application of modern control methods to the wind power control—specifically the models of type 3 and type 4 wind turbines. The modeling aspects will help readers to streamline the wind turbine and wind power plant modeling, and reduce the burden of power system simulations to investigate the impact of wind power on power systems. The use of modern control methods will help technology development, especially from the perspective of manufactures.
Chapter coverage includes: status of wind power development, grid code requirements for wind power integration; modeling and control of doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) wind turbine generator (WTG); optimal control strategy for load reduction of full scale converter (FSC) WTG; clustering based WTG model linearization; adaptive control of wind turbines for maximum power point tracking (MPPT); distributed model predictive active power control of wind power plants and energy storage systems; model predictive voltage control of wind power plants; control of wind power plant clusters; and fault ride-through capability enhancement of VSC HVDC connected offshore wind power plants. Modeling and Modern Control of Wind Power also features tables, illustrations, case studies, and an appendix showing a selection of typical test systems and the code of adaptive and distributed model predictive control.
- Analyzes the developments in control methods for wind turbines (focusing on type 3 and type 4 wind turbines)
- Provides an overview of the latest changes in grid code requirements for wind power integration
- Reviews the operation characteristics of the FSC and DFIG WTG
- Presents production efficiency improvement of WTG under uncertainties and disturbances with adaptive control
- Deals with model predictive active and reactive power control of wind power plants
