ABSTRACT

The conversion of an input AC power at a given frequency and voltage to an output power at different frequency and voltage can be obtained with static circuits called power converters, containing controllable power electronic devices. Various power converters have been developed to fulfill the requirements of the wind power generation. The most common option for the generators used in wind power generation is “asynchronous”, because support for speed variations is provided. This represents a major advantage, considering that the wind speed can exhibit fast variations, mainly during flurries. These result into significant mechanical stresses, smaller when an asynchronous generator is used as compared to a synchronous one, usually operating at a rated speed. The common way to convert the low-speed, high-torque mechanical power to electrical power is using a gearbox and a generator with standard speed. The Grid Connection Code for RPPs in South Africa has stipulated that all RPP shall be equipped with reactive power control functions capable of controlling the reactive power supplied by the RPP at the POC as well as a voltage control function capable of controlling the voltage at the POC via orders using set points and gradients. The reactive power and voltage control functions are mutually exclusive, which means that only one of the three functions mentioned below can be activated at a time. (a) Voltage control (b) Power Factor control (c) Q control. The Q control is a control function controlling the reactive power supply and absorption at the POC independently of the active power and the voltage.
