Formatted abstract
Growth and penetration of renewable energy has been remarkable during the last few years in many power systems around the world. Essentially, there are two major technologies responsible for the growth, namely wind and photovoltaic. The technologies involved in harnessing energy from wind and sun are distinctly different in dynamic characteristics and limitations. Consequently, their influence on stability of power system should not be overlooked. This paper examines the small-disturbance angle stability with high penetration of renewable energy and proposes a methodology to control. The hierarchical principal component analysis, which is a clustering method corresponding to the eigenvalue sensitivity of reactive power control, is utilized to select the renewable generator clusters for different reactive power control scheme. Then, the framework based on structured singular value has been employed, in which the reactive power controls of renewable generator clusters are selected such that the desired robust stability criterion is satisfied. Results obtained in 16-machine 68-bus test system (typically used for small-signal angle stability studies) show the effectiveness of the proposed methodology.
