ABSTRACT
Induction generators connected to the local grid may lead to severe power quality problems such as flicker, voltage dip etc. Further, unbalancing of the supply system may distort the supply voltage at the point of common coupling (PCC). The power quality and reliability issues of an induction generator for embedded generation have been analyzed in this paper. The behavior of the grid with connection/disconnection of the induction generator, variable wind speed operation, unbalancing, and harmonic injection have been simulated using MATLAB. The voltage dip transients, harmonics, voltage flicker, voltage unbalance of the supply system have been described to ascertain the impact of induction generator on reliability and power quality of the supply.
