The scope of this project is to investigate and model the dynamic interactions between series capacitors and large wind farm generators and to identify controls to mitigate the impact of these interactions on the stability of the grid.

The objectives of this research project are to:

  • Highlight any potential SSI issues that can occur between series capacitors and wind turbine generators
  • Establish a control system that could be implemented as part of the wind turbine converters to mitigate any SSI issues
The project will be deemed successful if the above-mentioned objectives are delivered and when the full report detailing the research, modelling and results is delivered upon completion of the project.
