Abstract

Submarine cable is indispensable for offshore wind farms (OWFs) connected to a power grid, and it can cause certain degrees of impact on system performance due to different lengths, characteristics, and electrical parameters of the employed submarine cables. This paper employs the power-system simulation software of Power System Simulator for Engineering (PSS®E) for modeling a future-scheduled OWF, i.e., a large-scale doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG)-based OWF of 200 MW, connected to Jang-Bin Distribution Substation in Taiwan through five feeders, five circuit breakers, two step-up power transformers, commercial submarine cables, and underground cables. This paper simulates and compares the electrical quantities of the studied OWF with different operating capacities under various lengths of three types of commercial submarine cable. The transient surge peak voltages at the common bus of the OWF and the bus of Jang-Bin Distribution Substation due to the switching of one of the five circuit breakers of the studied OWF under different lengths of the three types of commercial submarine cable are also compared using the power-system simulation software of EMTP/ATPDraw.
