This paper presents a comprehensive solution to mitigate the sub-synchronous oscillation (SSO) in wind farms connected to series-compensated transmission lines. The concept of motion-induction amplification (MIA) is introduced to reinterpret the physical root cause of the negative resistance in doubly-fed induction generators (DFIGs). Based on this new interpretation, a novel control scheme called motion-induction compensation (MIC) is proposed to counteract the MIA effect. The MIC control eliminates the negative resistance in DFIGs across the entire frequency range, and makes the Type-III (DFIG) generator behave like a Type-IV generator in dynamics. The proposed solution provides wide-range SSO damping and also shows excellent robustness against model and measurement errors.
