Reactive power compensation of wind-diesel hybrid power systems using Matlab/Simulink
This article presents reactive power compensation of isolated wind-diesel hybrid power system for realistic load disturbance using Matlab/Simulink. The mathematical model of the system based on Matlab/Simulink is developed. Reactive power control performance is compared using three different types of Static VAR Compensator (SVC) models. Transient responses for step plus normally distributed and band limited white noise random signals have been presented in this paper.
