      Nowadays, wind power plants (WPPs) should be able to dynamically change their power output to meet the power demanded by the transmission system operators. When the wind power generation exceeds the power demand, the WPP ...
    • A wind farm control strategy for power reserve maximization 

      Siniscalchi Minna, Sara; Bianchi, Fernando Daniel; Prada Gil, Mikel de; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (Elsevier, 2019-02-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Nowadays, in many countries wind energy is responsible for a significant part of the electricity generation. For this reason, Transmission System Operators (TSOs) are now demanding the wind power plants (WPPs) to contribute ...
    • A wind farm operational strategy for primary frequency support optimization 

      Siniscalchi Minna, Sara; Bianchi, Fernando Daniel; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Prada Gil, Mikel de (2017)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      With the aim of distributing the total power required at the wind farm control level for each wind turbine, we proposed a multi-objective model predictive control scheme able to (i) ensure the tracking of the power demanded ...
    • Advanced wind farm control strategies for enhancing grid support 

      Siniscalchi Minna, Sara (2019-12-20)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Nowadays, there is rising concern among Transmission System Operators about the declining of system inertia due to the increasing penetration of wind energy, and other renewable energy systems, and the retirements of ...
    • Partitioning approach for large wind farms: active power control for optimizing power reserve 

      Siniscalchi Minna, Sara; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos; Bianchi, Fernando Daniel; Prada Gil, Mikel de; De Schutter, Bart (IEEE Press, 2018)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Nowadays, large wind farms are expected to guarantee stability of the electrical grid contributing with ancillary services, such as frequency support. To this end, wind farm controllers must set the power generation of ...
    • Predictive control of wind farms based on lexicographic minimizers for power reserve maximization 

      Siniscalchi Minna, Sara; Bianchi, Fernando Daniel; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2018)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      This paper presents a model predictive control (MPC) strategy aimed to regulate the total power delivered to the grid while maximizing the power reserve. Nowadays, the high participation of wind energy in the electricity ...
