Study Of Grid Connected Induction Generator for wind Power Applications

Ayenampudi, Praveen Varma and Kothuri, Bala Chakri (2012) Study Of Grid Connected Induction Generator for wind Power Applications. BTech thesis.



Over the past few decades, there has been an increasing use of induction generator particularly in wind power applications. In generator operation, a prime mover (turbine, engine) drives the rotor above the synchronous speed. Stator flux still induces currents in the rotor, but since the opposing rotor flux is now cutting the stator coils, active current is produced in stator coils, and motor now operates as a generator, and sends power back to the electrical grid. Based on the source of reactive power induction generators can be classified into two types namely standalone generator and Grid connected induction generator. In case of standalone IGs the magnetizing flux is established by a capacitor bank connected to the machine and in case of grid connection it draws magnetizing current from the grid.

This project explicitly deals with the study of grid connected induction generators where frequency and voltage of the machine will be dictated by the electric grid. Among these types of IGs, Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) wind turbines are nowadays increasingly used in large wind farms because of their ability to supply power at constant voltage and frequency. Modern control techniques such as Vector control and MFC (magnitude and frequency control) are studied and some of proposed systems are simulated in MATLAB-SIMULINK environment.
