Experimental Verification and Performance Analysis of Permanent Magnet Wind Turbine Generators Considering Magnetic Losses


Article Preview

This paper deals with experimental verification and performance analysis of permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) for wind power generation considering magnetic losses using d-q axis model. The d-q voltage equation of the PMSG is derived. The equations for losses such as copper loss, core loss and mechanical loss are also derived. Finally, by implementing dynamic simulation block diagram for the prediction of generating performance considering losses using MATLAB/SIMULINK, the generating performances of the PMSG are predicted under various speeds and loads. The predicted results are validated extensively by finite element (FE) analyses and measurements.
