Due to the power electronic converter based interface and maximum power control strategy, wind generators cannot directly respond to power system transients. This brings new challenges on power system transient stability. Taking wind turbine type 4 (WT4) as one example, this paper analyses its influence on transient stability with respect to locations, low voltage ride through parameters, wind power plant installation capacity and penetration levels. Based on the sensitivity analysis carried out for the influence of WT4, a supplementary transient stability control is proposed. The results on a 3-area system show that this supplementary control can improve transient stability of power systems with high penetration of wind power.
