Abstract

When the installed capacity of wind power becomes high, the power generated by wind farms can no longer simply be that dictated by the wind speed.With sufficiently high penetration, it will be necessary for wind farms to provide assistance with supply-demand matching. The work presented here introduces a wind farm controller that regulates the power generated by the wind farm to match the grid requirements by causing the power generated by each turbine to be adjusted. Further benefits include fast response to reach the wind farm power demanded, flexibility, little fluctuation in the wind farm power output and provision of synthetic inertia.
