Global warming and the desire to increase the use of clean energy have led to increasing the installation and operation of renewable energy power plants (REPPs), especially large-scale photovoltaic (PV) farms (LPFs). Given that the LPFs are added to power system or replace conventional power plants, they must be able to perform the basic tasks of synchronous generators (SGs). One of these tasks is the ability to mitigate the low-frequency oscillation (LFO) risk. Also, one of the LPFs problems is reducing the power system inertia and increasing the risk of LFOs. Therefore, these types of power plants must damp the LFOs through a power oscillation damping controller (PODC), similar to the performance of power system stabilizers (PSSs) in the SGs. This paper represents an overview of the different PODCs and control methods for LFOs damping by LPF. It seems that it can be a driver for future studies.

Abstract

Global warming and the desire to increase the use of clean energy have led to increasing the installation and operation of renewable energy power plants (REPPs), especially large-scale photovoltaic (PV) farms (LPFs). Given that the LPFs are added to power system or replace conventional power plants, they must be able to perform the basic tasks of synchronous generators (SGs). One of these tasks is the ability to mitigate the low-frequency oscillation (LFO) risk. Also, one of the LPFs problems is reducing the power system inertia and increasing the risk of LFOs. Therefore, these types of power plants must damp the LFOs through a power oscillation damping controller (PODC), similar to the performance of power system stabilizers (PSSs) in the SGs. This paper represents an overview of the different PODCs and control methods for LFOs damping by LPF. It seems that it can be a driver for future studies. Different studies show that the application of PODCs for LPFs can play an effective role to damp the LFOs and increase the power system stability.
