Control design methodologies to reduce high-frequency resonance interactions in power-electronic converters to enhance wind power generation

The aim of this project is to investigate the risk for converter control interaction in systems with high penetration of wind power. In particular, the focus of the project is on interactions in the high-frequency range. Key control and system parameters that have a major impact on the system stability will be identified and new control algorithms together with design guidelines and recommendations will be proposed to avoid this kind of instabilities. This will ease the interoperability of multivendor systems, thereby facilitating large penetration of wind power without compromising the system stability. Finally, the proposed solutions will be verified analytically, via simulation and over a small-scale laboratory setup.
