Power Quality Monitoring for Wind Farms

With the increasing amount of wind power generation connected to the power grid, the importance of measuring the wind turbines’ power characteristics and power quality characteristics is growing.

By capturing this data, one can achieve improved utilization of the turbine by manipulating its control systems in accordance to power grid requirements for voltage/frequency fluctuations and fault conditions.

This paper shows how this data can be used to improve power quality, system stability, and for predictive maintenance.
