Abstract: Multiple Sources of generation is being introduced in current day power systems with an increasing number of wind energy systems being integrated due to the focuson creating a sustainable energy network in the future. When the network is subjected to severe interruptions like voltage sag or short circuit fault, the wind energy systems usually gets disconnected from the grid so that the system is protected from voltage drops in the range of 0.2 to 0.3 pu. This becomes detrimental to the stability of the system with the large integration of wind generators in the power system network due to the loss of a considerable part of wind generators during a transient disturbance. The proposed scheme seeks toutilize an effective vector control strategy for reactive power compensation which assists in theaccelerated restoration of terminal voltage.
