Large-capacity wind farms may increase the risk of torsional vibration of turbine generator shafts in the wind-thermal-bundled power transmitted by series-compensated system, therefore the analysis and suppression strategy of sub-synchronous oscillation (SSO) in such system needs to be thoroughly studied. In this paper, the mechanism of electromechanical torsional interaction and the influence of wind farm integration on system oscillation are analyzed. In order to suppress the SSO, the mechanism of electromagnetic torque increment produced by additional damping control of static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) is studies, based on which, a SSO damping controller is designed. Based on the complex torque coefficient approach and time domain simulation approach simulation cases are built in DIgSILENT/PowerFactory. The results show the impact of wind farm integration and series compensation degree on system damping and verify the suppression effect of STATCOM on system SSO.
