Abstract

In this paper the effect of static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) for improving dynamic performance of wind farm in power system is presented. The effectiveness of the STATCOM is validated through simulation results obtained on three pairs of 1.5 MW wind-turbines system model built in Matlab Simulink. The pitch angle control was applied to all wind turbines. The simulation results are validated with time domain simulations using Simulink MATLAB. The results show the capability of STATCOM controller for dynamic performance improvement under various disturbances. Output power, reactive power and voltage presented under different cause and discussions are mentioned therein.
