Grid Code Compliance with DFIG in Wind Power Plants without Crowbar Activation

As renewable energy production from onshore and offshore wind parks increases, and the proportion of all power generated by such decentralised systems becomes more important, grid code compliance becomes vital. There is a need for grid code requirements that define the behaviour of wind park power characteristics in the event of a grid failure at the point of common coupling with the grid. While various technical solutions exist for wind turbine power generation, the doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) technology is the preferred solution and has the biggest market share.
