This presentation given at the 2015 Asia Clean Energy Forum describes lessons learned from a hybrid wind and diesel system in the Galapagos Islands, focusing on the relevance of the turbine electrical system and ancillary equipment to supply short-term active and reactive power to balance grid frequency and voltage. Guidelines are recommended for additional work to be considered when planning off-grid systems as opposed to a conventional grid-connected wind farm. The achievements seen with small grid islands can be replicated with bigger conventional grids.
