Voltage Feedback based Harmonic Compensation for an Offshore Wind Power Plant

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

When an offshore wind power plant is connected to the grid, there is a risk of amplification of certain harmonics and appearance resonances at the point of connection due to the interaction between the grid network and the wind power plant network. Hence, the plant developer is obliged to maintain the harmonic distortion at the point of common coupling within the planning level limits using harmonic compensation, which is usually done by passive filters. In this paper a novel active harmonic compensation technique using voltage feedback from a non-local bus has been proposed and analyzed. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated through real time simulations on a test system model.
