Doubly-fed induction generator based wind power plant models
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis describes the generic modeling of a Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based wind turbine. The model can also represent a wind plant with a group of similar wind turbines lumped together. The model is represented as a controlled current source which injects the current needed by the grid to supply the demanded real and reactive power. The DFIG theory is explained in detail as is the rationale for representing it by a regulated current source. The complete model is then developed in the time-domain and phasor domain by the interconnection of various sub-systems, the functions of which have been described in detail. The performance of the model is then tested for steady-state and dynamic operation. The model developed can be used for bulk power system studies and transient stability analysis of the transmission system. This thesis uses as its basis a report written for NREL .
