Abstract

In this study, the penetration effect of wind generation on voltage stability in a weak multi machine power system has been investigated. In terms of static and dynamic voltage stability, the most critical bus of IEEE 10-machine 39-bus system has been determined by using sensitivity analysis. The comparison has been made for various wind power penetration levels. It is shown if a large amount of wind power is integrated into power system, the system stability will be deteriorated. In the paper, a static synchronous compensators (STATCOM) is proposed to improve the stability. The calculations and simulations have been conducted by DIgSILENT Power Factory 15.0. Comparative simulation results show that the STATCOM can effectively increase voltage stability margin of the AC system which was considerably decreased due to wind power's penetration.
