This paper focuses on the modeling and control of WECS (Wind Energy Conversion System) in a grid connected system through PWM converters with DC link. A Wind Power Plant which is comprised of wind turbines are connected to Synchronous Generator with Multimass Torsional Shaft Interface modeled and designed. The output power of the generator is transmitted to Grid bus through PWM rectifier (to convert AC to DC) and a STATCOM based PWM inverter. This multi-level inverter convert DC power into ac power at desired output and frequency through a transformer .Varying the firing angle of converters simulation results show the effectiveness of the STATCOM based PWM converter presented in this paper using PSCAD/EMTDC software.
