Abstract This paper deals with the analysis of the possible adoption of a static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) with grid-connected constant-speed wind turbines. Three different cases are simulated using Matlab/Simulink for investigating wind-power impact on a power grid connected to wind turbines. The simulations yield information on (i) how the faults impact on the wind turbines and (ii) how the STATCOM influences the post-fault behaviour of the power system. In this paper, an attempt is made to compare the impact, in terms of voltages and active and reactive powers, of adding wind turbines and STATCOM to an electrical power grid. The simulations show that the goal of keeping turbines operational can be achieved.
