Published online: 2017


The main aims of this paper are to analyse the short circuit transient behaviour of a grid connected hybrid power system (wind farm) and to offer suggestions for short circuits damages to be less affected. The hybrid power system in which conventional power system is integrated with wind farm is studied. In this research ATP/EMTP software is used for modelling of hybrid system integrated with wind generator and to simulate transient analysis of the 3-ⱷ short circuit fault (SCF), line to ground fault and effect of fault resistance on conventional system and at Wind farm. The resulting transient over-voltages and currents has been computed & plotted. The effect of Wind farm on conventional power system during faults has also been studied.
