Abstract

This paper presents a method to design and tune the main controller of a Wind Power Plant (WPP), with focus on the active power and frequency control. The controller requirements are based on the Danish grid codes. The controller functionality is successfully verified using the model and the layout of an actual WPP rated at 160 MW, that consists of 80 wind turbines. Two reference dispatch strategies are investigated, equal and proportional. The proportional dispatch is preferred due to better tracking accuracy and robustness. The work described in this article is meant to help WPP developers and researchers to design the main controller of a WPP using the well-known single input-single output (SISO) tools
