## Need for Wind Turbine Models

wind turbine capacity
has grown to the point
where they need to be
explicitly considered in
system-wide transient
stability studies

## Growth in US Wind Capacity

http://www.awea.org/publications/reports/AWEA-Annual-Wind-Report-2009.pdf

## Wind Turbine Modeling

A wind farm usually consists of many small turbines in a
collector system
Each turbines voltage is usually less than 1 kV (usually 600
V) with a step-up transformer (usually to 34.5 kV)
Usually, the wind farm is modeled in aggregate, but how
accurate such aggregate models are is an open question
PowerWorld Simulator provides support of each of the four
major types of wind turbine models used in transient
stability studies

## Type 1: Induction generator with fixed rotor resistance

Type 2: Induction generators with variable rotor resistance
Type 3: Doubly-fed induction generators
Type 4: Full converter generators

## New wind turbines are either Type 3 or Type 4

T12: Wind Turbine

## Wind Turbine Modeling:

Power Flow Solution
Wind turbines are represented as generators in
the power flow
Type 1 and 2 units operate at fixed real/reactive
power with the unit supplying real power and
consuming reactive power; usually there are
compensating capacitors
Type 3 and 4 are treated as regular PV buses

## Wind Generator Models

Wind Turbines do not have an exciter, governor, or
stabilizer
However, modeling is very analogous

## Wind Machine Model = Machine Model

Wind Electrical Model = Exciter
Wind Mechanical Model = Governor
Wind Pitch Control = Stabilizer
Wind Aerodynamic Model = Stabilizer

## Simulator will show wind models listed as though they

are Exciters, Governors, and Stabilizers
Obviously you should not use a synchronous machine
exciter in combination with a wind machine model and wind
governor!

## Wind Turbine Voltage Control

Voltage control of wind turbines depends on the type
Type 1 squirrel cage induction machines- no direct
voltage control
Type 2- wound rotor induction machines with variable
external resistance, no direct voltage control, but
external resistance system usually modeled as an exciter
Type 3 and Type 4- have the ability to perform voltage
or reactive power control, similar to synchronous
machines. Common control modes are constant power
factor control, coordinated control across a wind farm to
maintain a constant interconnection point voltage, and
constant reactive power control

## Wind Turbine Modeling

Types 1 and 2- Induction machine models, stator windings are
connected to the rest of the network, rotor currents are
induced by the relative motion between the rotating magnetic
field due to the stator currents and the rotor

rotor speed, defined using motor convention as

Real Pow er

Type 1 generators usually operate with a small negative slip since the
wind turbine causes the machine to spin slightly faster than
synchronous speed
T12: Wind Turbine

## Type 2 Wind Models

Type 2 models augment Type 1 by allowing for variable rotor
resistance control in the wound rotor induction generator
By using turbine speed and electrical power output as inputs to the
control system, the wind turbine can provide a more steady power
output during wind variation

Doubly-Fed Induction Generators (DFIGs)
In addition to the stator windings, rotor windings are connected
to the AC network through a converter

Allows a much wider speed range

## Type 3 Wind Models

Physically, these models usually consist of a wound rotor
induction machine coupled with a voltage-source converter
AC excitation system
Electrical performance is dominated by the converter which
acts on a much faster time scale than transient stability level
dynamics
Machine model consists of a synthesized voltage behind a
reactance
Rotor dynamics are not important electrically

Modeling

## Represents the generator by a machine model

Reactive power control by an exciter model
Mechanical control by a governor model
Blade pitch control by a stabilizer model

12

## Type 3 Wind Model Example

Generator 3 will be modeled using a GEWTG
machine, which models a 85 MW aggregation
of GE 1.5 MW DFIGs
Exciter model EXWTGE will be used to model
the reactive power control of the wind turbine
Governor model WNTDGE will be used to
model the inertia of the wind turbine and its
pitch control
Generators 1 and 2 remain unchanged

## Type 3 Wind Model Example

During the fault the wind turbine terminal bus voltage will be quite
low. This will cause the turbines Low Voltage Power Logic (LVPL) to
reduce the real power current to zero.
This will cause the wind turbine pitch
control system to begin to pitch the blades
Pitch
to reduce the mechanical power into the
rotor. This pitch control occurs slowly.

## Example: Impact of a Complex Load

The way load dynamics are modeled often has a significant impact
on the results of transient stability studies
So far, we have mostly been looking at generator models, but many
load models are also available in Simulator
The default (global) models are specified on the Options, Power
System Model page as constant impedance loads
Used when no other model is specified
Discussed in the Transient Stability Basics section

More detailed models are added by selecting Stability Case Info
from the ribbon, then Case Information, Load Characteristics Models.
Models can be specified for the entire case (system), or individual
areas, zones, owners, buses or loads.
To insert a load model, right-click and select Insert
to display the Load Characteristic Information dialog.
T12: Wind Turbine

Add a CLOD model to the system
Go to the Load Characteristic page
in Model Explorer
Right-click and choose insert to
information dialog

## In the dialog, click System in the

Element Type box to apply the
load model to all buses in the
system
Click Insert to select the model
type. Use CLOD (see [1]), which
models the load as a combination of
large and small induction motors,
constant power and discharge

## Type 4 Wind Models

Completely asynchronous by design, called a full converter
model
The wind turbines output is completely decoupled from the
network using an AC-DC-AC converter
This decoupling allows considerable freedom in selecting
what type of electric machine is used
Machine could be a conventional synchronous generator,
permanent magnet synchronous generator, or squirrel cage
induction machine
No electrical coupling with the turbine dynamics

## Represented as a VSC, like Type 3, but with Ip and Iq as direct

control variables and without effective reactance
Modeled
Machine/Exciter combination WT4G1/WT4E1 (PSSE)
Machine/Exciter/Governor WT4G, WT4E, and WT4T (PSLF)
