Improvement of Transient Stability of Dfig Based Wind Generator by Resistive Type Solid State Fault Current Limiter Using Fuzzy Controller

Authors(2) :-B. Rajesh, Dr. K. Jithendra Gowd

Transient stability is one of the main problems for the Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based variable speed Wind Generator (WG) system during the fault, as DFIGs stator windings are straight forwardly associated with the grid. In this paper, a resistive type solid state fault current limiter (R-type SSFCL) with fuzzy logic controller is proposed to expand the transient stability of the DFIG based variable speed WG system. A three-line-to-ground (3LG), twofold line-to-ground (2LG) and single-line-to-ground (1LG) deficiencies were connected to one of the doubled circuit transmission lines of the test system to explore the R-type SSFCL transient stability execution. Furthermore, a Bridge type Fault Current Limiter (BFCL) and a LR-type Solid State Fault Current Limiter (SSFCL-LR) are additionally considered to contrast their execution and the proposed R-type SSFCL. Simulations were done in MATLAB/Simulink programming. Simulation results demonstrate that the SSFCL upgrades the transient stability of the DFIG system. Besides, this R-type SSFCL with fuzzy logic controller works superior to the R-type SSFCL with pi controller, BFCL, and LR-SSFCL in every prospect.
