  • A comparative study on the grid integrated wind energy conversion systems (WECS) using different generator models

    A huge number of wind generators are going to be connected with the existing network in the near future. Therefore, it is necessary to analyse various models of wind energy conversion systems (WECS) for the purpose of studying the impacts upon grid. This paper presents comparative study on grid connected WECS having two different wind turbine generator systems (WTGS): model 1 [WTGS having doubly ...

  • Modelling and control of a variable speed wind turbine driving doubly fed induction generator using three–level PWM converter

    The aim of this researcher is to develop a complete wind central model driven doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) which feeds an AC power grid. For that, two–pulse width modulated (PWM) voltage converters are connected back to back between the rotor terminals of DFIG and the utility grid via a common DC link, in there, our contribution will appear in the utilisation of three levels voltage ...

  • A combined electro-mechanical control technique for dynamic voltage regulation of a stand-alone wind turbine generator

    This paper introduces a computer-based model and dynamic simulation of a combined electro-mechanical control technique for a stand-alone wind turbine generator system. The presented combined control technique consists of three closed loops for speed regulation, nacelle alignment and dynamic load voltage regulation. Speed regulation is achieved by adjusting the pitch angle of the turbine blades. ...

  • Wind Surpasses Nuclear in China

    Wind has overtaken nuclear as an electricity source in China. In 2012, wind farms generated 2 percent more electricity than nuclear power plants did, a gap that will likely widen dramatically over the next few years as wind surges ahead. Since 2007, nuclear power generation has risen by 10 percent annually, compared with wind’s explosive growth of 80 percent per year. ...

  • Wind energy today and in the 21st century

    Wind energy is the most promising of the new renewable sources of energy. By the end of 1998, the global installed capacity of modern grid connected wind turbines was some 10,000 MW, and the growth rates of installations worldwide are 30%-40% annually. The cost of wind energy was reduced by 30% between 1991 and 1997 and the cost reduction is foreseen to continue. This article reviews the reasons ...
