The last few years have seen a growth in the planned and actual use of series compensation to accommodate new wind capacity. In particular, the Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) lines being developed for ERCOT will be series compensated. Other major transmission projects in the West and in Canada are likely to feature series compensation as well. In consideration of the growth of series compensation, as well as some anomalous incidents associated with wind turbine operation in series compensated systems, the IEEE T&D Committee initiated action to sponsor two Panel Sessions on Integrating Wind Power into Series Compensated Transmission Systems. This second session will address power system studies required to integrate wind power into series compensated transmission systems. A panel consisting of expert power system analysis professionals will discuss how to model and study series compensated systems for wind turbine integration.
