Transient Stability Enhancement of Induction Generator

Authors(2) :-Piyush Bahad, Nachiket Korde

Transient stability enhancement of induction generator is one of the main issues in wind power generator. Fault or any of sudden disturbances on power system may cause rotor speed instability and voltage instability. This paper investigates for transient stability enhancement of induction generator after fault. For transient stability enhancement, the method used in which unique property of reversing the rotating flux of stator field is employed. In this method, after clearing fault for short time rotating field of stator is reversed results in opposition between stator rotating field and mechanical torque. It is nothing but changing operating mode from generating to plugging. This operation avoids rotor from further acceleration. Simulation result shows that proposed method is efficient for enhancing transient stability. Since in this method, no need of any external equipment, proposed method is more attractive than previous methods, from economic point of view.
