2021 SEP 16 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Network Daily News -- A new study on Energy Grids and Networks - Sustainable Energy Grids and Networks is now available. According to news reporting out of Pato Branco, Brazil, by NewsRx editors, research stated, “The increasing penetration level of wind generation in power systems has resulted in the degradation of the system frequency response and stability issues, where the decrease of the system equivalent inertia is one of the main causes of these problems. In this context, this work proposes an operational and control approach to provide emulated inertial response to wind turbine generators based on fully rated converter that operate at the maximum power point.”

Funders for this research include Financiadora de Inovacao e Pesquisa (Finep), SETI, Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Cientifico e Tecnologico (CNPQ), Fundacao de Amparo a Pesquisa e Inovacoo Estado de Santa Catarina (FAPESC), Coordenacao de Aperfeicoamento de Pessoal de Nivel Superior (CAPES).

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Federal University of Technology, “The inertial response of the wind turbine generator is extended by a control strategy that combines an adaptive MPPT control with an adaptive inertia control based on virtual synchronous generator. The proposed approach mitigates the antagonistic interaction between the traditional MPPT control and inertia control. The impact of the MPPT control and inertia control on the dynamics of the wind turbine and system frequency is comprehensively addressed. The results have shown that the proposed strategy is effective in extending the inertial response of the wind turbine generator and mitigating the amplitude of the second frequency dip and electromechanical oscillations caused by the conventional MPPT control.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “The adaptive inertia control also prevents the violation of the minimum speed limit of the wind turbine.”

This research has been peer-reviewed.
