Nowadays, wind power generation is being located offshore because of its higher wind speed at lower height and larger installation zones in comparison with onshore technologies. Recently, the concept of wind power plant has been introduced as a result of the increment of wind power penetration in power systems. Transmission system operators are requiring wind power generation to help to power system with some ancillary services such as fault ride through or power system stabiliser capability. Therefore, it is important to study power system stabiliser capability of wind power plants. In this paper, a comparison of various power system stabiliser schemes is presented. The effect of the distance from the shore tie-line to the offshore wind farm on the controller response is also evaluated. These studies show that offshore wind power plants have promising power system stabiliser capability even using local input signals.
