Abstract
Low-voltage ride-through (LVRT) capability is now required for all large-scale wind turbines (WTs) connected to the grid. This paper presents an on-site LVRT testing method for full-power converter (FPC) WTs. The new method makes use of the already installed WTs to emulate the grid and produce a given fault for the WT under test. To guarantee the safety of grid, both the test and grid emulation WTs are disconnected from the network and operate in stand-alone mode during the test. The system conf...
