Abstract: This paper investigates the fault ride through (FRT) capability improvement of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG)-based wind turbine using a dynamic voltage restorer (DVR). Series compensation of terminal voltage during fault conditions using DVR is carried out by injecting voltage at the point of common coupling to the grid voltage to maintain constant DFIG stator voltage. However, the control of the DVR is crucial in order to improve the FRT capability in the DFIG-based wind turbines. The combined feed-forward and feedback (CFFFB)-based voltage control of the DVR veries good transient and steadystate responses. The improvement in performance of the DVR using CFFFB control compared with the conventional feed-forward control is observed in terms of voltage sag mitigation capability, active and reactive power support without tripping, dc-link voltage balancing, and fault current control. The advantage of utilizing this combined control is veried through MATLAB/Simulink-based simulation results using a 1.5-MW grid connected DFIG-based wind turbine. The results showgood transient and steady-state response and good reactive power support during both balanced and unbalanced fault conditions. © 2017 IEEE.
