Hello, I hope everything is ok for you.
First, I wish to thank you for the time and consideration you gave to my post.
I am currently conducting my Master Thesis about the islanding operation of six distributed steam turbine generators in a 60kV high voltage network.
Each generator is a salient pole synchronous machine and has typically these power values: 37MW and 47MVA. the distance between the generators is in kilometers.
So here are my questions:
- are there any control strategies adapted for this situation, so as to operate all of these generators in island mode (disconnected from the grid utility, supplying local loads)?
- if there is an increase or decrease in load demand while working in island mode, how can the six generators share the load power demand?
- should droop or isochronous control be used for the generators during the island mode?
- are there any load shedding techniques adapted for this situation?
I am still struggling with this, so any help is really welcome; websites, company products, articles, theses, etc.
Thank you very much for your help.
