Variable speed wind energy converter, multi-variable generator control, decoupling control methods


In order to achieve an high penetration in the electrical grid and an economical utilization of wind energy earlier it is advisable to reduce the pollution on the one hand and to increase the efficiency of wind energy converters on the other. Therefore a new generator system control was design and tested on a 22 kW wind energy converter test bed. The control concept is characterised by sufficiently high control dynamics. Besides sufficiently high control reserves for an operation within a broad speed range and high control dynamics, a stable operation over the whole speed range has been obtained.
