  • Modelling and control design for self-excited induction generator with solid-state lead-lag VAr compensator in micro-hydro energy conversion scheme

    This paper deals with the design of single-input single-output control system for voltage control of a stand-alone self-excited induction generator (SEIG) employing inductively loaded current controlled solid-state lead-lag (ICSL) VAr compensator. The ICSL compensator has wide lead and lag VAr controlling capability, requires few inductive elements and is of low cost. The prime mover for SEIG is considered to be an unregulated hydro-turbine in micro-hydro energy conversion scheme. In the present study, the stress is laid on modelling and simulation of a closed loop control system. The response of the system for a stepped change in the load on the output voltage has been studied.

  • Computer based real-time simulator for renewable energy converters

    The report describes the work undertaken to develop a real-time dynamic simulator for renewable energy conversion systems. It presents the fully dynamic models of a wind energy converter (WECS) and micro-hydro converter (MHCS). The simulator hardware consists of a DC drive and DC motor that acts as a prime mover and provides a shaft torque for a grid connected induction generator. The simulator software models the 'front end' to provide a torque demand for the DC drive. The report also focuses on the requirements of the software communication between the drive and the model, focusing on a novel use of serial communication with the Simulink Real-Time Workshop. The paper concludes with a summary of the achievements met by the simulator, focusing on the novelty and flexibility of such a system.

  • Improved power transfer capability of SEIG in variable speed wind turbine generation system

    Self excited induction generator (SEIG) is well known for constant speed application such as micro-hydro generation due their low cost, reliability and simplicity in operation. Along with advanced power electronic converters SEIG is now also applied in variable speed operation such as wind turbine. Poor voltage regulation and over-sized machine are several drawbacks in variable speed operation using SEIG. In this paper a comprehensive sizing of shunt and shunt-series compensation capacitors for SEIG variable speed wind turbine driven are discussed. Steady state model of SEIG and power characteristic of wind turbine are the main discussion in this analysis. The results show a significant improvement in overall performance at which generation system is capable to operate at low wind speed regime. Also smaller power rating of induction machine could be used to provide same power transfer capability as in the over-sized machine.

  • Electrical load controller for rural micro-hydroelectric systems using a programmable logic controller

    Micro-hydroelectric systems convert the energy of moving water into electric energy. In rural settings, micro hydroelectric systems are run at full power at all times to avoid the cost of expensive electromechanical controls. That in turn causes the generator to produce its maximum rated power. If the electric energy supply and demand are not matching, the generator eventually fails. Electronic load controllers have been proposed in the literature to better match the demand and supply. In this paper, an electrical load controller is implemented using a programmable logic controller (PLC). PLCs are used in industrial applications and can withstand high levels of dust, dirt and moisture making them very suitable for micro-hydroelectric applications. The proposed controller monitors the frequency of the generator. It will dynamically balance the system power by incrementing or decrementing the power rating of a resistive heating load. The controller was experimentally tested in a lab using a micro-hydroelectric emulator. The emulator includes a 13.8 kW generator, a 10 Hp motor, a motor drive and the PLC controller. The results showed that the PLC controller is a viable load control system for such an application.

This study is based on modeling, simulation and proposed of hybrid renewable energy system in remote area in Rangamati hill-tract district. This model has designed to provide an optimal system configuration based on hour-by-hour data for energy availability and demands. Various renewable or alternative energy sources, energy storage and their applicability in terms of cost and performance are discussed. The HOMER software is used to study and design the proposed hybrid renewable energy power system model. Thus, this paper proposes a methodology to report the data regarding the design and implementation of hybrid renewable energy systems to enable the comparison of future projects and contribute to the discovery of new insights about the implement ability of these systems.
