Power-Flow Control and Short-Circuit Current Limitation of Wind Farms Using Unified Interphase Power Controller
This paper presents analytical and simulation studies of wind farms (WFs) connected to power system through a unified interphase power controller (UIPC), which should control power flow and the short-circuit contribution of WF. The UIPC is based on an interphase power controller (IPC) in which the phase-shifting transforms are replaced by two series converters (SECs). In this paper, the UIPC model is developed based on phase angles of injected SEC voltage and a control scheme is proposed to control power flow and limit the short-circuit contribution of WF. The WF model is based on an equivalent aggregated variable-speed double-fed induction generator. The PSCAD/EMTDC simulation results show that the UIPC is an effective and novel solution for power-flow control and limitation of short-circuit contribution of WF in power systems.
