Abstract

The limited resources of fossil fuels and recent environmental concerns, wind energy emerges as a clean renewable energy to substitute the traditional energy sources. However, wind energy has several shortages due to its energy harnessed from the wind. Research shows that theses shortages can be improved by implementing reactive power compensation and energy storage technology into the wind power plant. This project focused on implementing the two technologies into large wind farms and combining them into one system to maintain stability control of the wind power plant.
