Abstract

Wind parks are made up of a large number of saturable inductances (power transformers, inductive voltage transformers (IVTs)), as well as capacitors (cables, wind turbine harmonic filters, capacitor voltage transformers (CVTs), voltage grading capacitors in circuit-breakers). Therefore, they may present scenarios in which ferroresonance occurs. This paper presents the scenarios that can lead to ferroresonant circuits in doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind parks. Ferroresonance conditions and their consequences are demonstrated by simulating the detailed model of the wind park in EMTP-RV. The wind park simulation model includes detailed models of wind turbines, medium voltage (MV) collector grid, high voltage/medium voltage (HV/MV) wind park substation, overvoltage, overcurrent and differential current protections, current transformers (CTs), IVTs and CVTs.
