  • 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.

  • Control of Scig Wecs With Voltage Source Converters

    This chapter deals with the predictive control of full‐scale low‐voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) voltage source converters (VSCs) employed in SCIG wind energy conversion systems (WECS). The generated power is instantaneously injected to a utility grid via the full‐scale converter connected between the generator stator and grid terminals. The generator‐side 2L voltage source rectifier (2L‐VSR) enables full variable‐speed operation by controlling the output voltage amplitude and frequency. The overall SCIG model includes both electrical and mechanical variables. The electrical model includes stator voltages, currents and fiux linkages, and rotor fiux linkages, whereas the mechanical model includes the dynamics of rotor speed, moment of inertia, and electromagnetic torque. The electromagnetic torque is computed by the cross product of estimated stator flux vector and measured stator current vector. The perturbations in stator voltage measurement and stator winding resistance lead to inaccurate flux estimation, especially at low‐speed operation.

  • Background

    This chapter provides a brief generalized overview concerning renewable energy, biomass applications, and co-firing. The renewable energy covers a wide array of energy sources such as wind, water, geothermal, solar and biomass. From ancient time to the present day, biomass was and remains a reliable source of energy in our daily lives. Typical biomass applications can be categorized under combustion, gasification, and pyrolysis. The chapter briefly discusses the three types of co-firing: direct co-firing, indirect co- firing and parallel co-firing. A new design for the systems engineering approach solutions is what many of the co-firing systems presently require. To obtain the energy, the combustion factor is the key to biomass conversion technologies: thermochemical conversion, and biochemical conversion. The chapter also discusses Energy Crops Scheme, Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) and Climate Change Levy Exemption Certificate (LEC).

  • Solar and Wind Energy

    Wind is the natural movement of the air due to differences in atmospheric temperatures and pressures. The wind turbine converts the kinetic energy of the wind into mechanical energy at the shaft of the turbine. The shaft of the turbine in turn is connected to a generator where this mechanical energy is converter to electrical energy. For utility operations, the generator is required to operate at a substantially faster speed than the shaft of the rotor connected to the wind blade. The power curves for various types of wind turbines are different, depending on the design of the machine. For very low wind speeds below the minimum operational speed of the machine, the wind turbine is not able to convert an adequate amount of energy to drive the generator. Concentrating solar power (CSP) systems receive solar energy and concentrate this energy into a collector.

  • 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).

  • Modeling of Power Converters for Model Predictive Control

    This chapter deals with the modeling of power converters employed in Type 3 and 4 variable‐speed wind energy conversion systems (WECS), particularly for 2L‐ voltage source converters (VSCs) and NPC converters. Model Predictive Control (MPC) uses a completely different approach and does not require comprehensive knowledge on the space vector diagram, SV diagram sectors, reference voltage vector, and adjacent vectors. All the voltage vectors are utilized to predict the future behavior of the variable to be controlled, and an optimal voltage vector that fulfills the control objective is selected from them. The proper selection of switching signal leads to the accurate control of reference variables, such as generator or grid currents and balancing of DC‐link capacitors voltage. The generalized approach for the modeling reveals that the models can be extended to multilevel and multiphase applications in an intuitive manner. The operational modes and space vector diagrams of various power converters are presented to aid the discussion and to show proof of concept.
