This paper proposes a novel integration of wind farm energy storage (ES) systems within microgrids. The main feature of the method is that the voltage and frequency control of the microgrid is shared by the wind generators through droop characteristics. Therefore, the control structure is suitable when the wind generators supply significant part of the load. The paper modifies the standard droop method in order to force the generators to share the load according to their available wind power and not just the generator rating. The paper focuses on islanded microgrid application; however, the method is applicable when there is a controlled connection to the main grid via a power converter, and also for HVDC connection. The proposed control methods are derived for doubly-fed induction generators (DFIGs) and validated using PSCAD/EMTDC simulations. The ride-through in case of a 3-phase fault on the local grid will also be simulated.
