A control scheme for wind farms based on synchronous generators connected to a single power converter is presented. The scheme is applicable to HVDC interfaced offshore or remote wind farms. The proposed control scheme is based on computing the optimal wind farm electrical frequency depending on the different incoming wind speeds. The power converter regulates the system frequency by adjusting the power injected to the HVDC circuit. Fault ride-through is also possible by reducing rapidly the injected active power. The proposed scheme is validated by means of simulations with a wind farm composed of four wind turbines.
