Transient Stability Enhancement of Grid Integrated DFIG Based Wind Energy Conversion System

Project Code :TEPGPS445


The main objective of this project is to enhance the transient stability of the DFIG based to wind energy conversation system


The wind power generation is increasing day by day with the advancement in technology. The most popular type wind turbine in these days is DFIG due to its benefits like variable speed operation and smooth control of reactive & active power. 

This paper uses Butterworth polynomial method to calculate gains of various PI controllers used in Rotor side converter and Grid side converter in order to improve the dynamic performance of the DFIG and to improve the stability of the system.

 This paper analyze a grid connected DFIG of 9 MW (consist of 6 units of 1.5 MW DFIGs) simulated in MATLAB. And the system is analyzed for different transient conditions such

as three phase fault, voltage sagging and voltage swelling in the power system. This paper also examines the grid connected DFIG under different grid disturbances along with the use of STATCOM.

Keywords: DFIG, STATCOM, Reactive power compensation, Transient stability.
