ADVANCED TRAINING ON MODELLING AND SIMULATION OF WIND ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEM HAS BEEN HELD IN CODELECTRA (VENEZUELAN COMMITTEE OF ELECTRICITY)-CARACAS, VENEZUELA

9th October 2010, Caracas, Venezuela

 On Friday October 9, 2010, the Advanced Training on modelling and simulation of WECS has been held at the headquarters of CODELECTRA.

 This high level course was lectured by Dr Francisco M. González-Longatt, he is an Research Associate at The University of Manchester, United Kingdom and Vice-President of the Venezuelan Association of Wind Energy (Aveol).

Twenty-three participants were taught for eight hours an deep introduction to the theoretical aspects regarding the modelling and simulation of wind turbines, the main commercially available technologies was described completely.

Subsets of elements was modelling one by one and the full model was developed, Furthermore, all the theoretical knowledge has been complemented with real experiences of Dr Gonzalez-Longatt, these wind turbines models were integrated into the electric power system, and the results have been discussed.

The simulations have been performed using the famous, powerful, and amazing software for power system simulation: DIgSILENT ® and results obtained from MATLAB ® and Simulink have been compared with DIgSILENT.
