14:30 - 16:00 Advanced design and control solutions for grid integration
Integrating wind power into the electricity market  
Onshore      Offshore    

Room: Montparnasse

Many new issues must be solved in order to integrate large amounts of wind power into energy supply systems. This session will consider how grid code compliance can affect wind power plant design and operation. Wind power plants must be able to tolerate short circuits on the grid, so testing of fault ride-through capabilities of turbines is required; and the design of circuit breakers for HVDC-connected wind farms is a particular issue. The session also considers harmonics caused by wind turbine inverters, and a method for modelling the effect of wind power plants containing multiple DFIG wind turbines is presented.

Learning objectives

​Delegates will be able to:

  • Understand grid code requirements for wind power integration
  • Recognise how wind pant can be designed and operated to comply with grid codes, and the effect on cost of energy
  • Understand new solutions for circuit breakers in HVDC-connected wind farms to deal with grid faults, and testing facilities for wind turbine fault ride-through capabilities
  • Appreciate methodologies for assessing harmonics caused by wind turbine inverters
  • See how symbolic computation can be used to simulate the effect of wind farms comprising DFIG wind turbines
