In this chapter, a simple aggregated model of large wind farm in the small signal stability analysis is employed. We assume that currently the operating conditions of all wind generators in a wind farm are same, and the wind farm is considered to be formed with a number of wind generators jointed in parallel. Therefore, the wind farm can be reduced to a single machine equivalent. For a wind farm consisted of N wind generators, the values of stator and rotor voltages are same as the value of single machine. The stator and rotor currents are N times larger than the single machine. The stator and rotor resistances and reactances as well as K2 are 1/N larger than the single machine. The remaining control parameters are same as the single machine.

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. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
