Abstract    This paper studies the interest of the integration of battery energy storage with Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) for improving the low voltage ride through capability (LVRT) of a fixed speed wind turbine connected to the grid. For this reason and by applying a grid fault, a comparison is made between integrating the SSSC, the STATCOM and the STATCOM with battery energy storage. The system with the aforementioned flexible alternating current transmission system (FACTS) systems is simulated using MATLAB/SIMSCAPE and the results show that the STATCOM with a battery is most efficient in terms of improving the LVRT of a fixed speed wind turbine.

چکیده    در این مقاله مطالعه‌ای بر روی ادغام ذخیره سازی انرژی باتری با STATCOM برای بهبود قابلیت عبور از ولتاژ پایین (LVRT) یک توربین بادی سرعت ثابت متصل به شبکه انجام گرفته است. به همین دلیل و با استفاده از یک گسل شبکه، یک مقایسه بین یکپارچه سازی SSSC، STATCOM و STATCOM با ذخیره انرژی باتری انجام شده است. این سیستم با سیستم های FACTS مذکور با استفاده از نرم افزار MATLAB/ SIMSCAPE شبیه سازی شده و نتایج نشان می دهد که STATCOM با یک باتری، از نظر بهبود LVRT یک توربین بادی سرعت ثابت، کارآمد ترین می باشد.
