Variable speed wind turbine with full scale converter or so-called Type-D wind turbine generator worldwide installation has been significantly increased in the last few years. Voltage sag in the grid side may cause the wind turbine to be disconnected from the grid. In this paper, effect of STATCOM on the low voltage ride through capability of Type-D wind turbine during voltage sag in the grid side is studied. Simulation is carried out using MATLAB/Simulink software. Results show that STATCOM can significantly improve the voltage profile at the Point of Common Coupling (PCC) and improve the capability of Type-D wind turbine and prevents it from being disconnected from the grid during certain level of voltage sag in the grid side.
