Due to increasing penetration of wind power into traditional grid, co-working of synchronous generators with wind turbines is gaining attention in terms of system stability. This paper deals with the transient stability enhancement of such systems by generalized unified power flow controller (GUPFC) having grid frequency switching quasi multi-pulse converters. Besides independent real and reactive power flow control capability of the two series converters, one series converter is commissioned to damp synchronous/induction generator speed fluctuations by a self-tuning fuzzy damping scheme in which output scaling factor is adjusted on-line according to a second fuzzy rule-base defined on error and error-integral of the synchronous generator speed. Damping function is further enhanced via simplex optimized gains cascaded to fuzzy inference system. AC bus voltage and DC link voltage of GUPFC are effectively controlled by the shunt converter without disturbing other control loops.

Koç, Erkan; Güven, Ali Nezih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Technological improvements on wind energy systems with governmental supports have increased the penetration level of wind power into the grid in recent years. The high level of penetration forces the wind turbines stay connected to the grid during the disturbances in order to enhance system stability. Moreover, power system operators must revise their grid codes in parallel with these developments. This work is devoted to the modeling of variable speed wind turbines and the investigation of fault ride troug...

Efficient integration of renewable energy sources into the electricity grid has become one of the challenging problems in recent years. This issue is more critical especially for unstable energy sources such as wind. The focus of this work is the performance analysis of several alternative wind forecast combination models in comparison to the current forecast combination module of the wind power monitoring and forecast system of Turkey, developed within the course of the RITM project. These accuracy improve...

Duymaz, Erencan; Pourkeivannour, Siamak; Ceylan, Doğa; ŞAHİN, İLKER; Keysan, Ozan (2018-10-25)
Increasing renewable energy integration to grid requires inertial support to improve frequency stability of the power system. Inertial support of renewable energy systems requires hardware verification in order to test practical limitations and absence of dynamical grid simulators makes verification studies more challenging. In this study, a test rig which is composed of a DC motor, an AC synchronous generator and an external flywheel, is developed in order to provide a platform in which dynamic properties ...
Hybrid excited synchronous generator design and comparison of direct drive wind turbines
Akgemci, Aysel; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Various types of electrical generators are used in wind turbines and there is not an agreement on the best generator type. Although, high speed Doubly Fed Induction Generators (DFIGs) are still the most common generator topology utilized in wind turbine systems, there is a trends toward direct-drive Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators (PMSGs), as they are more efficient and reliable. However, permanent magnets (PMs) induce uncontrollable voltage due to the fixed flux resulting from PM excitation. Conven...
