Abstract

More and more attention on wind farm sub-synchronous oscillation (SSO) has been paid as many SSO incidents in wind farms have occurred. This paper presents an overview of recent SSO issues in wind farm from the perspective of control, including the analysis methods, the study system, and the SSO mitigation by damping control. Three major analysis methods, as well as different study systems for wind farm SSO study, are comprehensively reviewed. The adaptability and complexity of the methods and study systems are analysed, and an overall survey of recent SSO analysis is given. Among the wind farm SSO mitigation methods, the sub-synchronous damping controller (SSDC) is one of the most commonly used methods in practice. Its conīŦguration and signal selection are introduced in this paper.
