This paper presents a theoretical analysis and experimental evaluation of the switched reluctance generator (SRG) for off-grid variable-speed wind energy applications. The detailed model, control parameters and operational characteristics of the SRG as well as variable-speed wind turbine are discussed. In order to drive the wind energy conversion system (WECS) to the point of maximum aerodynamic efficiency, a SRG power output feedback control strategy which optimized angle position-current chopping control cooperating PI regulator is proposed. The control strategy is also demonstrated by means of Matlab/Simulink. Moreover, an experimental test system is set up, which a cage induction machine is used to emulate the variable-speed wind turbine. The experimental results validate the proposed control strategy and confirm the SRG performance.
