Conventional power systems rely on synchronous machines for generation of power and also for formation of an interconnected network of generation to which loads are connected via a transmission system (known as a grid). Increasingly renewable sources of energy are interconnected to a grid via power electronic converters. These converters have been traditionally operated with the assumption of an existing grid thanks to the presence of synchronous machines. In recent years, it has been noted that operating conditions have arisen that require the normally grid-following converters to assist in establishment of a grid, a mode known as grid forming. This proposal looks into the methods and algorithms that are required for grid-forming operation of wind energy systems in particular those with a diode rectifier unit. TO BE CONT’D
