    Article
    Open Access
    This paper analyses, from a steady state point of view, the potential benefit of a Wind Power Plant (WPP) control strategy whose main objective is to maximise its total energy yield over its lifetime by taking into ...
  • DFIG-based offshore wind power plant connected to a single VSC-HVDC operated at variable frequency: Energy yield assessment 

    de Prada Gil, Mikel; Díaz González, Francisco; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol; Sumper, Andreas (2015-06-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    The existence of HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) transmission systems for remote offshore wind power plants allows devising novel wind plant concepts, which do not need to be synchronized with the main AC grid. This ...
