Active and reactive powers and currents formulations applied to wind farms

Figure 1 schematically shows the equivalent circuit of a wind generator connected to the grid (represented by a delta-connected load). Phases of the wind generator are star-connected and there is no neutral wire. Active and reactive phenomena in these power systems do not depend on the zero-sequence voltages and, thus, any artificial ground can be chosen to measure phase voltages at the point of common coupling (PCC).

Active and reactive phenomena in that power system are analyzed and their characteristic quantities are formulated in this section using the Unified Theory (León et al., 2001). Traditional active and reactive powers included in the IEEE Standard 1459-2010 will be expressed at last of this section in order to compare the results obtained with these mentioned approaches applied on data registered in actual wind farms, in other sections.

Renewable Energy Eco Friendly

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable.
