Optimal Allocation of Wind Turbines in Active Distribution Networks by Using Multi-Period Optimal Power Flow and Genetic Algorithms

P. Siano, P. Chen, Z. Chen, and A. Piccolo Abstract. In order to achieve an effective reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the future electrical distribution networks will need to accommodate higher amount of renewable energy based distributed generation such as Wind Turbines. This will require a re-evaluation and most likely a revision of traditional me­thodologies, […]

Testing the System with VSI and Controllers

As discussed, two controllers (feedback controller for FC and inverter controller) are constructed using the equations discussed before. These controller are constructed to­gether because the PI feedback controller requires an AC feedback voltage from the inverter to calculate the DC feedback current. Both the inverter and fuel cell control­ler must then run together. In this […]

Reactive Power Support Requirements

3.1 Conceptual Discussion and Background Apart from VRT capability, another key requirement associated with the integra­tion of wind generation technology into the transmission grid has been the need for reactive power support. As in the case of VRT capability requirements, the in­creasing penetration of WGRs has resulted in the regional reliability organizations and/or utilities mandating […]
