Current vector trajectory analysis for dip voltage fault detection and identification: Application to wind generator turbine

This paper proposes a non-parametric method to detect grid voltageĀ dipĀ in a Wind Turbine Generator. The method is based on the analysis of the grid currents vector trajectory in the stationary reference frame. Two features (amplitude variation and angle deviation) are extracted for Fault Detection and Isolation.

The approach is validated through simulation results of a Doubly Fed Induction Generator. The results show that the method is robust to parameter and load variations. The fault detection time duration is less than one cycle.
