Abstract

The main aim of this research work is to assess the impact of wind farm integration on existing electricity grid in UAE and its protection system. The case study considered in this research work is 132 kV Dubai transmission network. The grid integration model was built using MATLAB Simulink software including grid parameters and 1.5 MW doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) model. The DFIG generator was enhanced with AC crowbar, DC chopper and low voltage ride-through (LVRT) based control components which were built using MATLAB Simulink. The protection relays used in this study are differential protection, directional overcurrent and earth fault protection. The protection algorithms were programmed in MATLAB scripts and tested to different fault scenarios extracted from the integration built model. The protection relays' performance results are presented and analysed in this paper. The obtained results showed the excellent performance of differential relays and the defects of Directional relays' response in terms of reliable protection system performance due to transient disturbances effect on the grid. The study outcomes were used to recommend the design of suitable protection scheme for the interface transmission line to wind farm integration projects in Dubai.
