The measurement of one of the power-quality problems (flicker), which may arise due to the presence of wind-turbine generators, is presented. This paper focuses on the design of a complete fully digital flickermeter relying on an in-house-developed measurement system, which features a data-acquisition system, using a C6711 DSP-based starter kit (DSK) and a field programmable gate array (FPGA). To study flicker produced during the wind turbine's continuous operation, special attention is given to the simulation of the voltage fluctuations on a fictitious grid.
