About this book

Introduction

This book reviews and examines how power system low-frequency power oscillations and sub-synchronous oscillations may be affected by grid connection of wind power generation. Grid connection of wind power generation affects the power system small-signal stability and has been one of the most actively pursued research subjects in power systems and power electronics engineering in the last ten years. This book is the first of its kind to cover the impact of wind power generation on power system low-frequency oscillations and sub-synchronous oscillations. It begins with a comprehensive overview of the subject and progresses to modeling of power systems and introduces the application of conventional methods, including damping torque analysis, modal analysis and frequency-domain analysis, presented with detailed examples, making it useful for researchers and engineers worldwide.

About the authors

Prof. Wenjuan Du, Member of IET, Member of IEEE, North China Electric Power University (NCEPU), Beijing, China. She had worked in the UK from 2003 to 2013 before she took the appointment at the NCEPU as a full professor.  Prof. Du’s expertise is the modelling, analysis and control of power system stability. More recently she has worked on the network integration of renewable power generation, including wind and photovoltaic and high-voltage DC power transmission and systems. Prof. Wenjuan Du has published about 60 international journal papers, including the IEEE Transaction/IET proceedings papers, in addition to about 80 international conference papers. She also published three books on power system stability analysis and control.

Prof. Haifeng Wang is a Professor at the State Key Lab of Renewable Power Generation Power Systems, North China Electric Power University in Beijing, China. 

Siqi Bu received the Ph.D. degree from the electric power and energy research cluster, the Queen’s University of Belfast, Belfast, U.K., in 2012, where he continued his postdoctoral research work before entering industry. Subsequently, he joined National Grid UK as a Power System Engineer and then became an experienced UK National Transmission System Planner and Operator. He has received various prizes due to excellent performances and outstanding contributions in operational and commissioning projects. He is an Assistant Professor with Hong Kong Polytechnic University and also a Chartered Engineer with UK Engineering Council. His research interests are power system stability analysis and operation control, including wind power generation, PEV, HVDC, FACTS and ESS.
