Recently, the concept of wind power plant has been introduced as a result of the increment of wind power penetration in power systems. A wind power plant can be defined as a wind farm, which is expected to behave similar to a conventional power plant in terms of power generation, control and ancillary services. Transmission system operators are requiring wind power generation to help to power system with some ancillary services such as fault ride through or power system stabilizer capability. Therefore, it is important to study the power system stabilizer capability of wind power plants. In this paper, a comparison of various power system stabilizer schemes is presented. The effect of the distance from the tie line to the wind farm on the controller response and the influence of wind power plants proximity to synchronous generators are also evaluated. These studies show that wind power plants have promising power system stabilizer capability even using local input signals. However, the location of the wind power plant on the power system is a critical factor. Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
