This paper tackles the instability of a wind farm made of a Fixed Speed Wind Turbine (FSWT)/an Induction Generator (IG) and a Variable Speed Wind Turbine (VSWT)/Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) during wind change and grid fault. Simulation results show that the VSWT can effectively stabilize itself and the FSWT because it can provide enough reactive power through the frequency converter control to the wind farm without external reactive power compensation unit during wind speed change and grid fault.
