Abstract

The problem of voltage ride through capability of fixed speed wind generation as a result of voltage sags is examined by means of a simulation study. The role of a Unified Power Quality Conditioner (UPQC), which provides both shunt and series compensation, in enhancing the ride through capability is investigated under both full and partial voltage restoration. Results of a study to identify the minimum rating requirements to ensure stability are presented.
