Special Lecture on "Wind Power into Power Systems: Integration Issues"

Wind energy systems have seen substantial growth around the world, especially in Europe. This growth has led to a rapid change in the generation landscape because of the increasing penetration of wind energy in utility systems. These fundamental changes require the power grid to become more vibrant and interactive which will demand significant changes in grid operation, protection, and control. This seminar provides a comprehensive overview about issues related to the integration of wind power into power system and its impact over the performance.


I.Brief Introduction of Wind Power into Power Systems,

II. Wind Turbine Technologies Commercially Available: Fixed-Speed, Variable-Speed

III. Electric Generators used on Wind Power:

(a) Single Cage Induction Machines,

(b) Double Fed Induction Machine,

(c) Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine,

IV. Brief Introduction of controller involved on wind power generation units,

 V. Aspects and Issues of wind power integration into Power System,

VI. Overview of future projects on UK (North Sea case: Dogger Bank, Hornsea, etc).
