Analysis of PMSG-Based Wind Power Generator Performance under Faults

Authors(2) :-M. Venkata Gowtham, P. Sujatha

Fuzzy logic control of a full-scale permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) based wind turbine with dc-link voltage control through the machine-side converter can possibly give inherent low-voltage ride-through (LVRT) execution without extra equipment parts. In any case, a few essential execution aspects identified with this topology are not tended to in this writing. This paper examines the effects of the LVRT control on the stability and risk of resonance, effective operation, and exhaustion in a full-scale PMSG-based wind power generation system. An analytical model, considering the double mass nature of the turbine generator and commonplace LVRT prerequisites is created, approved, what's more, used to describe the dynamic execution of the wind generation system under LVRT control and practical generator characteristics. To upgrade the operation and reduce the exhaustion under LVRT control, two solutions, in view of dynamic damping control and dc-link voltage transmission capacity retuning, are proposed, dissected, and thought about.
