Wind Power Generation continues to grow and is the key contributor to large scale variable power connected to grid in the renewable energy generation mix. Utility transmission system operators impose stringent grid codes internationally. The emphasis are given to low and high voltage ride-through capabilities, active and reactive power responses during and after faults, and reactive power (voltage) regulation. Rapid technological developments are in progress to meet various grid code requirements. In this paper, fault ride through techniques for all four types of wind energy conversion systems (WECS) are considered and some research studies are presented involving enabling technologies in grid code compliance, congestion management, and drive train diagnostics conducted at the Centre for Smart Grid and Sustainable Power Systems at Curtin University, Australia.
