Comparative study of control strategies for the induction generators in wind energy conversion system
Giribabu, D.; Das, Maloy; Kumar, Amit;
This paper deals with the comparison of different control strategies for the Induction generators in wind energy conversion system. Mainly, two types of induction machines, Self excited induction generator (SEIG) and doubly Fed Induction generators (DFIG) are studied. The different control strategies for SEIG and DFIG are compared. For SEIG, Electronic load Controller mechanism, Static Compensator based voltage regulator are studied. For DFIG the main control strategy namely vector control, direct torque control and direct power control are implemented. Apart from these control strategies for both SEIG and DFIG to improve the performance, the ANFIS based controller is introduced in both STATCOM and DTC methods. These control methods are simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK and performances are analyzed and compared.
Self excited induction generator (SEIG);doubly fed induction generator (DFIG);Electronic load Controller (ELC);Static Compensator (STATCOM);Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Interface System (ANFIS);Vector control (VC);Direct Torque control (DTC) and Direct power control (DPC);
