Abstract:

This whitepaper shows how a Xtreme Power (XP) large-scale power management, control, and storage system addresses the challenges of wind generation: 1) smoothing wind generated power, which is subject to second-by-second perturbations; 2) controlling ramp rates to manage large “wind excursions,” large changes in wind speeds; and 3) maintaining grid stability and protecting the wind generation assets from damage, through voltage regulation, VAR support, and radial line protection against over-voltage during fault conditions, including the threat of “islanding” on a radial line.
