Increasing Integration of Wind Power in Medium Voltage Grid by Voltage Support of Smart Transformer
The voltage rise during wind energy penetration represents a limit of the wind power integration in the distribution grid. The Smart Transformer (ST), a power electronics-based transformer, can provide additional services to the distribution grids, for instance the voltage support in MV grid by means of reactive power injection. In this paper, this service is applied to increase the hosting capacity of wind power in MV grids.
