ANALYSIS OF A VARIABLE SPEED DOUBLE-FED INDUCTION GENERATOR WIND TURBINE DURING NETWORK VOLTAGE UNBALANCE CONDITIONS.
Kearney, Joseph; Conlon, Michael
The behaviour of Double-Fed Induction Generators to supply network voltage unbalance is investigated. The paper shows the effects that voltage unbalance can have on a DFIG, using Matlab/Simulink. The results from simulations show that voltage unbalance affects both the induction generator and the rotor converter, due to the high unbalanced currents generated. The ability to modify the control strategy of a DFIG to compensate for voltage unbalance is outlined and simulations show the improvements to the performance of the DFIG.
