Grid Side Inverter Control for a Grid Connected Synchronous Generator Based Wind Turbine Experimental Emulator

Abstract : This paper describes the real time implementation and control of a wind energy conversion chain emulator based on a synchronous generator (SG) using a full-scale power converter configuration. The proposed structure consists of the mechanical coupling of two 1.5 kW machines, a DC motor which emulates the static-dynamic behaviors of a three-blade wind turbine with a horizontal axis including an ideal gearbox, and a synchronous generator that ensures the electromechanical conversion and manages the different operating modes. The aim of the first part in this work is the design and the implementation of the control of the grid side converter in order to control the flow of the produced/consumed active and reactive power (PGSC / QGSC) in both directions between the generator and the grid. An improved experimental grid voltage vector-orientation control algorithm (VOC) is investigated and applied to the grid inverter to control the GSC powers independently and instantly. The control algorithms are implanted in C, using dSPACE DS1104 control board to drive the 6-IGBT's inverter. The experimental results validate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme of the GSC.
