Wind Plant Transient Evaluation Studies

Wind Plant Transient Evaluation Studies
Wind Plant Transient Evaluation Studies Power system apparatus, such as transformers, switchgear, and cables may be exposed to various types of transients. High-frequency transients and very steep overvoltages may cause problems for electrical equipment because they can cause local overstressing of the insulation system. Wind plant collector circuit breaker opening-and-closing operations and lightning surge events are important potential sources of thes...
