ABSTRACT
Application of Distributed Generation (DG) to supply the demands of a diverse customer base plays a vital role in the renewable energy environment. Various DG technologies are being integrated into power systems to provide alternatives to energy sources and to improve reliability of the system. Power Evacuation from these remotely located DG's remains a major concern for the power utilities these days. The main cause of concern regarding evacuation is consumption of reactive power for excitation by Induction Generators (IG) used in wind power production which affects the power system in variety of ways. This paper deals with the issues related to reactive power consumption by Induction generators during power evacuation. Induction generator based wind turbine model using MATLAB/SIMULINK is simulated and its impact on the grid is observed. The simulated results are analyzed and validated with the real time results for the system considered. A wind farm is also modeled and simulations are carried out to study the various impacts it has on the grid & nearby wind turbines during Islanding and system event especially on 3-Phase to ground fault.
