Control and Monitoring for Grid Friendly Wind Turbines
Recent years have witnessed a continuing increase in the wind turbine (WT) size and penetration level into the grid, revealing critical challenges to sustainable market development and urgent demands of low voltage ride-through, load reduction, and optimal operation. This paper presents an overview on grid-friendly WTs and relevant technologies for control and monitoring.
The development trends are discussed as well to explore potential approaches for optimizing WT systems. The main body contains three parts: the “grid-friendly” criterion and a prototype, the overview and suggestions for WT controller design concerning load reduction and power optimization, and suggested solutions for wind power monitoring systems. This paper is expected to be a reference for extending the knowledge of grid-friendly WTs and optimizing the performance of future large-scale wind power systems.
