Authors(3) :-L. Senthil, Sonali Chadha, Poonam Gupta

Due to increasing wind power penetration into utility grids, system operators have instituted rigorous standards for ride-through fulfillment of grid-connected wind turbines. Series voltage compensation can be an effectual key to meet the new-fangled standards, especially if a low-cost system can be developed. This paper first presents the uniqueness of ride-through deeds of doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) using phasor investigation. The analysis is extended to include the effects of generic series Voltage compensation. A novel control method is designated and studied, which permits possibly low energy ratings in the series compensator thereby appreciably reducing overall system cost. The reactive power requisite of the system voltage during grid fault with new grid code achieved by the novel controller empowering the DFIG with the compensator. Simulation and experimental results have conformed, the improved performances resulting from the supplication of the control method.
