The increasing penetration of wind energy in power systems has forced operators worldwide to develop new grid codes to integrate this form of generation. One important aspect of the problem is the low-voltage ride-through capability of wind generators. This paper describes a solution for wind farms with squirrel-cage asynchronous generators based on the use of a dynamic voltage restorer. Along with a specifically developed control scheme, it provides the wind generator the ability to remain connected during a voltage disturbance and, at the same time, to fulfill the demanding reactive power requirements imposed by recent grid codes. The main experimental results of extensive laboratory tests on system performance are also presented.
