Solutions for Transient Stability Issues of Fixed-Speed Wind Generator Systems

8.1 Introduction

Induction machines are mostly used as wind generators. However, induction machines have stability problems, similar to the transient stability of synchronous machines [16]. Therefore, it is important to analyze the transient stability of power systems including wind power stations. The research on the selection of a suitable device for the stabilization of fixed-speed wind generators is a matter of interest. In literature, the static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) is reported to stabilize the fixed-speed wind generator [79]. The braking resistor (BR) has been recognized and used as a cost-effective measure for transient stability control ...
