The distributed power generation based on renewable energy sources such as wind and sun experiences a high penetration in the power systems around the world, having in some countries a large contribution to the total energy production. In order to protect the distribution and transmission systems, the grid operators are more and more talking about the ability of the distribution systems (mainly wind turbines WT systems) to behave as a conventional powerplant. This paper discusses the possibilities of the distributed power generation systems (DPGS) to deliver power when grid disturbances are present in the utility network. The focus is set more on the control strategies for active power generation, and mainly on the creation of the reference currents which fulfill the demanded output power. Considerations about reactive power are also stated. Experimental results are presented in order to validate the theory behind the proposedcontrol strategies on faulty grid.
