Large scale wind farms are subject to tripping, as a consequence of turbine failure, over-sensitive protection, turbines not equipped with low-voltage ride through (LVRT), and reactive power compensation device defects which can lead to voltage rises. This paper considers pertinent issues which render tripping based on a study of LVRT and wind farm protection, with methods to avoid large scale wind generator tripping proposed. The results of LVRT field tests in Jiuquan, China in December 2012 show that the proposed approaches are effective. The paper also presents work which proposes an early warning system to forecast the risk of wind power tripping.
