Abstract

A 5-kW wind energy conversion system (WECS) having induction generator is designed and implemented. The induction machine is connected to the power system through PWM inverter and PWM rectifier. Two digital PI controllers are used, one of them is for regulating dc link voltage and the other is for speed control of induction machine. The whole system is governed by a single fixed point digital signal processing unit (DSP). A detailed simulation program is prepared by using Matlab facilities in order to predict the performance of the controllers before implementation. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
