According to grid codes issued by utilities, tripping of wind turbines following grid faults is not allowed. Besides, to provide voltage support to the grid mandatory reactive current supply is necessary. To enable wind turbines ride-through low voltage periods special protection measures have to be implemented. In this paper the behavior of DFIG based wind turbines during grid faults is discussed and elucidated using simulation results. It is shown that with properly designed crowbar and DC-link chopper even zero voltage ride-through is possible.
