Abstract: The dynamic characteristics of power systems with increasing wind penetration levels are changing rapidly as the nature of the frequency response capability of these systems develop with the evolving plant mix. Consequently, the protocols for how these systems are operated are changing. While modern variable speed wind turbines do not inherently contribute to the inertial response of the system, they can offer a controlled response to system frequency imbalances, which harnesses the stored rotational energy of the blades. Unlike conventional machines, however, the tunable emulated inertial response of a variable speed wind turbine is dependent on the operating condition of the wind turbine and provides a distinct response to conventional generators. In some cases it is possible that inappropriate tuning of such a response could hinder the recovery of the system frequency following an imbalance. In this paper the emulated inertial response from wind generation on power systems of varying size is optimised, and the impact of system conditions on the response required is examined.
