Abstract

Onsite diesel-based power generation is a common practice within the industry, not just for supplying private demands but also as a solution to power quality problems. Although diesel generation has benefits, the cost of running such systems is rather high. In favoured locations, especially geographically-remote sites, wind-powered generation is an attractive, cost-effective option. This paper focusses on the development of individual generator models and some simulation results to assess the electrical integration of wind turbines into industrial power systems. Also, an insight into the assessment procedure and the proposed case study are also introduced
