  • Basics of Wind Energy Conversion Systems (Wecs)

    This chapter discusses wind energy preliminaries briefly in terms of installed wind power capacity, wind energy installations by various countries, wind kinetic energy to electric energy conversion, and evolution of major wind turbine (WT) technologies since the 1980s. WTs produce negligible power when wind speed is below the cut???in value; thus, because of which such turbines are usually kept in parking mode. The turbine is shut down and kept in parking mode when wind speed is above the cut???out value or during emergency condition to ensure safety. The passive stall or simply stall control is the first???generation power regulation method employed for WTs and is the simplest method among the three classes. This approach does not use any sensors, electronic controller, or actuator, thus making it less expensive and robust. Low??? and medium???power WTs can also be used in grid???connected DG to reduce electricity consumption from the utility grid. When the electricity produced by the WT exceeds the household or community requirements, the electricity is sold to the utility without employing any energy storage.

  • Review of Generator???converter Configurations for Wecs

    This chapter discusses the basics for wind energy and examines enough background to select wind generator???power converter configuration for modeling and predictive control. Power converters in first generation of wind turbines (WTs) (Type 1) are used only for smooth grid connections, which are disconnected from the circuit once the generator is tied to the grid. Power converters that are identical on the generator???side and grid???side and are linked through a DC link are classified as back???to???back (BTB) connected converters. Parallel power converters increase power handling capacity but with the drawbacks of circulating currents and the subsequent power converter derating. The semiconductor device switching frequency is limited to few hundred hertz to minimize the switching losses and allow proper heat dissipation. The minimization of AC circulating currents and balancing of capacitors voltage between submodules is required to ensure the proper operation of the modular multilevel converter (MMC).

  • Control of Pmsg Wecs with Back???to???Back Connected Converters

    This chapter discusses the predictive control of full???scale low???voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) voltage source converters (VSCs) employed in permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) wind energy conversion systems (WECS). The variable voltage and frequency output of PMSG is first rectified to DC by using the generator???side 2L???VSR. An imbalance between DC???link capacitors voltage is undesirable because it can cause high stress and damage to semiconductor devices. Digital control systems play an important role in the power conversion of WECS. They enable the safe, reliable, and efficient operation of power converters to ensure maximum energy capture and compatibility to the grid integration requirements. After initializing the digital controller and calculating the reference generator and grid currents, the PCC algorithm enters an iterative loop where the generator and grid currents are predicted and cost function minimization is performed. The control objectives of PMSG WECS can be achieved by regulating the stator currents, torque and flux, active and reactive powers, and rotor speed.

  • Design and Optimization of MMC¿¿?HVDC Schemes for Offshore Wind¿¿?Power Plant Application

    This chapter provides an overview on how different European regulatory frameworks impact the design optimization and ownership of HVDC schemes used for the export of offshore wind energy to the mainland. Main components of the offshore and onshore modular multilevel converter high¿¿?voltage direct current (MMC¿¿?HVDC) converters are presented with a brief introduction to various offshore platform technologies. In Europe, the third legislative package for the internal EU gas and electricity market released by the European Council requires the unbundling of ownership between transmission assets and generation assets. The implementation and adaption of this regulatory framework has resulted in two different European models for the construction and ownership of offshore generation and transmission assets. The choice of HVAC platform location is influenced by several factors: requirements from shipping and aviation authorities; water depth and seabed condition; and ac cable voltage profile and cable losses.

  • Control of Dfig Wecs with Voltage Source Converters

    This chapter deals with the MPC of power converters employed in doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) wind energy conversion systems (WECS). The generator???side converter (GSC) is connected to the WFCP through a harmonic filter and a step???up transformer. The power converter in a rotor circuit processes the slip power, which is approximately 30% of the rated generator power. The DFIG is popularly used in modern WTs because of its low converter cost, reduced power losses, and full controllability over active and reactive power. Digital control system development for the classical or predictive control of DFIG WECS requires a brief understanding of the block diagram of control scheme, control requirements, and calculation of reference control variables. The decoupling between the rotor???side converter (RSC) and GSC enables the use of two independent digital control systems. The stator???, rotor???, and grid???side feedback signals, as well as the DC???link, are used by the RSC and GSC digital control systems. The stator currents are measured in the opposite direction to enable the use of motor models for generator operation.

  • Overview of Digital Control Techniques

    This chapter discusses the classical and advanced digital control techniques, including predictive control and examines the operating principle of these control techniques with an intuitive example of generator or grid current control. When closed, a switch allows the passage of any amount of current without any on???state voltage drop. The power diode belongs to the family of uncontrolled semiconductor devices because its switching on and off instances depend on natural commutation and power circuits. This device has been widely used in industrial applications from the 1950s and is still widely used. More powerful digital control platforms are expected to be developed in the near future, thus resulting in lower costs and higher computational capacity than existing control platforms. Hysteresis current control does not require the system parameters, converter model, or prior knowledge of the user, thus making it one of the simplest and robust current control techniques. The relative magnitudes of these error signals are then used by a lookup table to generate the switching signals to the converter. To implement these methods on digital platforms, a high???sampling frequency is needed to force the variables within the hysteresis band limits.
