Abstract

The active power (P) ramp rate control functionality performed by a Power Plant Controller (PPC) for controlling a Wind Power Plant (WPP) handles the P ramp rate control under the scenarios including both the wind speed reaches nominal wind speed and is below nominal wind speed. Especially this control is effective when the wind speed is below nominal wind speed and it varies significantly to cause the WPP’s P to dramatically increase or decrease. A WPP comprises a plurality of Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs).
