Voltage Stability Enhancement in a Wind Generator Connected Electrical Network Using FACTS Devices

This paper presents voltage stability in an electrical network when connected by wind generators. Due to several advantages wind energy is the growing renewable energy. Nowadays, wind energy is penetrating into the conventional power network. Due to random variations in wind speed, the output power and terminal voltage fluctuates continuously. The influence of wind generators on the power quality is becoming an important issue; non-uniform power production causes variations in system voltage and frequency, therefore, a wind farm requires high reactive power compensation. The advances in high power semiconductor devices have led to the development of Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS).
