Descripción
The wind energy penetration rate is being increased in majority of European countries. However, a high penetration rate could endanger the stability of power systems, particularly in small islands. Hydropower plays an important role in the regulation and control of isolated power systems with renewable sources, but it may not be able to maintain the frequency within grid requirements. This is the case of El Hierro power system (Canary archipelago), where a hybrid wind?pumped storage hydropower plant (PSHP) was committed to reduce the use of fossil fuels. Currently, frequency regulation is only provided by the PSHP and diesel generators. Therefore, it is proposed that variable-speed wind turbines (VSWTs) contribute to frequency regulation, thereby minimizing the need for fossil fuels. This study aims to conduct an analysis on the effect of the VSWT contribution to frequency regulation in the power system of El Hierro. It is based on classical control tools from a linearized mathematical model considering different VSWT regulation strategies. The eigenvalues, damping ratio, and participation factors of the state variables have been obtained. The more significant oscillation modes in the dynamic response of the system have been identified. According to this modal analysis, a methodology for the adjustment of the PSHP and VSWT controller gains is proposed. An improvement in the quality of frequency regulation while maintaining the El Hierro system frequency within grid requirements has been proved based on simulating different events related to wind speed or variations in the power demand, using a nonlinear model of the combined wind?hydro power plant.
