Abstract: This paper examines the ability of a power system to accommodate wind generation with varying ratios of doubly fed induction generator and fixed speed induction generator turbines from both static and dynamic aspects. By controlling the ratio between the two types of turbines, voltage stability is maintained for steady-state conditions for a large range of varying wind speeds. Using the ratio determined from the static analysis, the dynamic analysis explores the voltage and frequency characteristics of the system under contingency conditions. An initial analysis was carried out on the IEEE 30 bus test system. The results of this analysis are presented in this paper and detail how by varying the ratio of the turbine types the frequency stability and voltage stability can be improved.
