Short summary
An important design criterion for the electric drive system of a wind turbine is the fulfilment of grid codes given by transmission system operators. The grid codes state how wind turbines/farms must behave when connected to the grid in normal and abnormal conditions. A type of testing equipment that comprises the use of fully-rated voltage source converter in back-to-back configuration for grid code testing is proposed. Test results of a 4 MW wind turbine and an 8 MW test equipment are shown.
