PIR Regulator Using DTC for DFIG during Unbalanced Grid Voltage Conditions


Article Preview

This paper presents a PIR regulator using direct torque control strategy of grid connected wind turbine driven doubly fed induction generators (DFIGs) when the grid voltage is unbalanced. Under the unbalanced grid voltage condition, the stator voltage and current quality is strongly affected due to the negative and distorted components. It will be reducing the performance of other normal loads connected to the DFIG. That control scheme consisting of indirect matrix converter using DTC. To verify the value of the proposed control strategy, simulation results with 500 MVA DFIG topology are presented and discussed in the paper. Finally,the simulation studies are carried out on a 500 MVA wind-turbine driven DFIG system under unbalanced grid voltage conditions. All the results are validated by using PSCAD simulation.
