The geographic suitability brings the offshore wind farm (OWF) and marine current farm (MCF) together with their aggregated power fed to grid simultaneously in most relevant energy harnessing infrastructures. However, stability assessment of the integrated system is a major concern due to the integration of stochastic and intermittent sources with parametric uncertainty. Bridge-type fault current limiter (BFCL) has consolidated their application for a suitable enhancement of stability margin for most modern supply systems. In this article, a detailed modelling of the integrated system is carried out in the presence of BFCL along with consideration of uncertainty as well. A robust H∞ controller design strategy for stability assessment of grid-connected OWF and MCF in the presence of parametric uncertainties is presented in this article. Linear matrix inequality (LMI) conditions are derived in the context of evaluating the robust controller gain with respect to desired robust stability margin. The efficacy of the controller design is compared with that of H∞ loop shaping and conventional P-I control through different case studies with simulation followed by real-time digital simulator (RTDS) validation.
