  • Abstract:

    In modern, stressed distribution system, voltage stability is a major concern from planning and operation perspectives. Remote wind farm connected to a weak distribution system through a long line could adversely affect the voltage stability of the respective distribution network. This paper investigates the transient and steady-state voltage issues of a distribution network with a distant doubly fed induction generator (DFIG)-based wind farm. Results show that a distant DFIG-based wind farm could improve the voltage stability of a distribution network with a large motor load in steady-state operating condition as well as following disturbances, like three-phase faults, sudden load tripping, and motor starting.
