The growing demand for wind power integration into the generation mix prompts the need to subject these systems to stringent performance requirements. This study sought to identify the required tools and procedures needed to perform real-time simulation studies of Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based wind generation systems as basis for performing more practical tests of reliability and performance for both grid-connected and islanded wind generation systems. The author focused on developing a platform for win d generation studies and in addition, the author tested the performance of two DFIG models on the platform real-time simulation model; an average SimpowerSystems® DFIG wind turbine, and a detailed DFIG based wind turbine using ARTEMiS® components. The platform model implemented here consists of a high voltage transmission system with four integrated wind farm models consisting in total of 65 DFIG based wind turbines and it was developed and tested on OPAL-RT’s eMEGASim® Real-Time Digital Simulator.
