The integration of wind power into a grid on a large scale results in a reduction of the system’s inertia level, causing an impact on the stability of the system frequency. Doubly fed induction generators (DFIG) can optimize active output but lack inertia support under maximum power point tracking control. To make the wind turbine improve the inertia support ability of the system based on virtual inertia control, a method for active power allocation based on the rotor speed of DFIG is proposed. Firstly, the minimum system inertia requirement based on the frequency change rate of the system is established. Active power allocation assumes that the wind farm inertia meets the minimum system inertia requirement. Secondly, the objective is to enhance the inertia support capability and overall active power output of the wind farm, considering the constraint of the minimum system inertia requirement. Based on the rotor speed to establish the inertia allocation weight factor, the weight of the power command is assigned to a single machine to achieve the wind farm active power allocation. Finally, it is verified that the system’s equivalent inertia meets the minimum inertia requirement of the system. Simulations show that the proposed allocation method can adequately elevate the inertia support capability of DFIGs to the system and the rotor kinetic energy utilization.
