This paper presents the voltage performance analysis of the system with various types of wind turbine generating units (WTGUs). A detailed voltage performance analysis is carried out by considering the different PQ models used for computing the reactive power output of the WTGUs (fixed/semi-variable speed and variable speed WTGUs). The different PQ models of fixed/semi-variable speed WTGUs incorporated for the studies are voltage dependent model, voltage independent model, power factor based model, and PX model. In addition, the variable speed WTGUs are also considered in different fixed power factor mode of operation. Based on these models, a comparative analysis is presented. A modified 27-bus equivalent distribution test system with dispersed wind generation is considered for the studies. Further, the case studies have been carried out by considering the various wind power output levels of WTGUs to examine its impact on system voltage performance. From the comparative analysis, the power factor based model can be the best choice over the other models (which are based on voltages) for the system studies with fixed/semi-variable speed WTGUs.
