S-69G Project Summary 

Mitigating Adverse Impacts of Negative Damping Induced by Wind Generators on Power Grid Dynamics 

Summary Integration of wind energy units to the power system introduces a new set of dynamics, including negative damping. This project seeks to study and characterize these dynamics and design controllers to mitigate the adverse impacts.
