Active and Reactive Power Control for Dual Excited Synchronous Generator in Wind Applications

Also Available Domains Power Quality

Project Code :TEPGPS557


The main objective of this project is to control active power and reactive power for dual excited synchronous generator in wind applications.


In this project, a dual excited synchronous generator (DESG) as a novel suitable alternative generation system for wind energy conversion systems. A new control strategy was proposed for the DESG wind turbine system. With this control technique, the DESG could be operated as a constant-speed constant frequency (CSCF) generation system with the benefit of adjusting the reactive power or as a variable-speed constant-frequency (VSCF) generation system with the benefits of simple control methods and lower copper losses. Using the space phasor model of the DESG, a direct relationship between the electromechanical torque and the armature reactive power in terms of the field current space phasor magnitude and the field voltage space phasor angle is provided. The proposed control strategy is based on controlling the field-current space phasor magnitude and the field-voltage space phasor phase angle to regulate the active and reactive powers of the DESG. Simulation results, based on MATLAB/SIMULINK, for a 1.1 kW DESG wind turbine system have been executed to verify the introduced control technique under various operating conditions. The simulation results can be evaluated by using Matlab/Simulink Software.

Keywords:Wind energy conversion system, dual excited synchronous generator, reactive power control, maximum power point tracking.
