An Evaluation of Quality Improvement Methods Regarding Output Power of Wind Plants` Inverters

Farshid Norouzi, Mohsen Zanganeh


Today, with respect to the problems derived from non-renewable energy such as environment pollution, increasingly growth of fossil fuels` costs and the process of running out of sources; using renewable energies has been highly considered. Meanwhile, wind energy has widely been utilized. Integrating wind energy within power systems minimizes their effects on environment while connecting wind generation systems within power systems causes technical challenges such as the problems related to power quality, voltage regulation and sustainability where power quality is of highest importance. The present study attempts to evaluate the methods of improving inventers` quality in wind plants. To this purpose, “Space vector pulse width modulation”, “using STATCOM” and “using UPQS” to improve power quality are discussed.
