TL;DR: In this article, a wind energy conversion system based on a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) connected to the electric power grid is presented, and the performances of the system were analyzed and compared by simulation using Matlab/Simulink/SimPower Systems.
Abstract: This paper presents the study of a wind energy conversion system (WECS) based on a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) connected to electric power grid. The performances (reference tracking and robustness) of classical Proportional-Integral (PI), Fuzzy-PI and Sliding Mode (SM) controllers are compared with respect to the wind speed fluctuation and the impact on the produced energy quality. Moreover, direct vector control with stator flux orientation of the DFIG is used to control the active and reactive powers between the stator and the grid. The performances of the system were analyzed and compared by simulation using Matlab/Simulink/SimPower Systems.

TL;DR: In this article, a comparative study of four controllers for Double Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based wind energy conversion system (WECS) is presented. And a set of simulation studies are carried out on a WECS model to prove the effectiveness of the proposed controllers design.
Abstract: This work aims to present a comparative study of four controllers for Double Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS). The DFIG is directly connected to the grid and driven by the rotor through an AC/DC/AC converter. A model was developed for each component (Turbine, DFIG and Rectifier-Filter-Inverter) of the wind system. The PWM control method is applied to the inverter to drive the DFIG from the rotor circuit. To ensure high performance and better enforcement of DFIG, a direct vector control strategy of active and reactive power of the stator has been developed. The synthesis of conventional PI controller and advanced RST, Sliding Mode (SM) and Fuzzy Supervisory (FS) controllers is performed. The system’s performance has been tested and compared according to reference tracking, robustness, and disturbance rejection. A set of simulation studies are carried-out on a WECS model to prove the effectiveness of the proposed controllers design.

Abstract: This paper presents a power control study of a Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) based on a Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) connected to the electric power grid. Proportional-Integral (PI) and Sliding Mode (SM) controls are used to compare the system's performances in terms of reference tracking and robustness to disturbance rejection and with respect to the machine parameters variation. The DFIG control method is based on vector direct control loop with stator flux orientation and the active and reactive powers are controlled PI and sliding mode Simulation studies were performed using Matlab/Simulink/ SimPowerSystems software.

Abstract: In this paper, a power control study analysis of a wind energy conversion system (WECS) based on a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) connected to the electric power grid is presented. The main objective of this work is to compare the energy production unit performances by the use of two types of controllers (namely, Polynomial RST and Sliding Mode (SM) Controllers) for the WECS control in terms of instruction tracking and robustness with respect to the wind fluctuation and the impact on the quality of the energy produced. A vector control with stator flux orientation of the DFIG is also presented to control the active and reactive powers between the stator and the network. To show the effectiveness of both control methods performances analysis of the system are analyzed and compared by simulation and results included in this paper.

TL;DR: An attempt has been made to review the applications of fuzzy logic based models in renewable energy systems namely solar, wind, bio-energy, micro-grid and hybrid applications and indicates that fuzzy based models provide realistic estimates.
Abstract: In recent years, with the advent of globalization, the world is witnessing a steep rise in its energy consumption. The world is transforming itself into an industrial and knowledge society from an agricultural one which in turn makes the growth, energy intensive resulting in emissions. Energy modeling and energy planning is vital for the future economic prosperity and environmental security. Soft computing techniques such as fuzzy logic, neural networks, genetic algorithms are being adopted in energy modeling to precisely map the energy systems. In this paper, an attempt has been made to review the applications of fuzzy logic based models in renewable energy systems namely solar, wind, bio-energy, micro-grid and hybrid applications. It is found that fuzzy based models are extensively used in recent years for site assessment, for installing of photovoltaic/wind farms, power point tracking in solar photovoltaic/wind, optimization among conflicting criteria. The review indicates that fuzzy based models provide realistic estimates.

TL;DR: An analytical technique using the `Newton-Raphson' method is presented to identify the saturated magnetising reactance and the generated frequency of a self-excited induction generator for a given capacitance, speed and load.
Abstract: An analytical technique using the `Newton-Raphson' method is presented to identify the saturated magnetising reactance and the generated frequency of a self-excited induction generator for a given capacitance, speed and load. The technique is shown to be very efficient in analysing such systems under steady state. Computed results are compared with the experimentally obtained values on a laboratory machine, and a reasonable correlation has been observed. Effects of various system parameters on the steady-state performance have been studied, and the results presented provide guidelines for optimum design of such systems.

TL;DR: An adaptive interval type-2 fuzzy logic control scheme is proposed for high-performance permanent magnet synchronous machine drives that combines the power of type- 2 fuzzy logic systems with the adaptive control theory to achieve accurate tracking and robustness to higher uncertainties.
Abstract: In this paper, an adaptive interval type-2 fuzzy logic control scheme is proposed for high-performance permanent magnet synchronous machine drives. This strategy combines the power of type-2 fuzzy logic systems with the adaptive control theory to achieve accurate tracking and robustness to higher uncertainties. Unlike other controllers, the proposed strategy does not require electrical transducers and hence, no explicit currents loop regulation is needed, which yields a simplified control scheme. But, this limits the machine's operation range since it results in a higher energy consumption. Therefore, a modified reference frame is also proposed in this paper to decrease the machine's consumption. To better assess the performance of the new reference frame, comparison against its original counterpart is carried-out under the same conditions. Moreover, the stability of the closed-loop control scheme is guaranteed by a Lyapunov theorem. Simulation and experimental results for numerous situations highlight the effectiveness of the proposed controller in standstill, transient, and steady-state conditions.

TL;DR: A state of the art review of various modern techniques for improving the performance of DTC control in terms of ripples reduction, tracking speed, switching loss, algorithm complexity and parameter sensitivity is presented.
Abstract: Conventional direct torque control (DTC) is one of the excellent control strategies available to control the torque of the induction machine (IM). However, the low switching frequency of the DTC causes high ripples in the flux and torque that leads to an acoustic noise which degrades the control performances, especially at low speeds. Many direct torque control techniques were appeared to remedy these problems by focusing specifically on the torque and flux. In this paper, a state of the art review of various modern techniques for improving the performance of DTC control is presented. The objective is to make a critical analysis of these methods in terms of ripples reduction, tracking speed, switching loss, algorithm complexity and parameter sensitivity. Further, it is envisaged that the information presented in this review paper will be a valuable gathering of information for academic and industrial researchers.

TL;DR: The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review of operation and control methods applied to MMC-HVdc systems with a specific focus on unbalanced ac-grid conditions.
Abstract: High-voltage direct current (HVdc) transmission systems based on modular multilevel converters (MMCs) are a promising solution for efficient bulk power transmission over long distances. As in grid-connected converters, the occurrence of grid-side faults is rather common, leading to imbalances and distortions of the ac-side voltages. Therefore, operation and control of MMC-HVdc systems under grid imbalances become of great significance in order to satisfy grid codes and reliability requirements of the system. The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review of operation and control methods applied to MMC-HVdc systems with a specific focus on unbalanced ac-grid conditions. The methods are classified based on their main control targets that include ac-side power control, control of the circulating current, and dc-side power ripple suppression control. Special attention is given to the comparison of the different control methods and specific requirements under certain operating conditions that include grid, load, or internal imbalances.
