Current Harmonics Reduction using Hysteresis Current Controller (HCC) for a Wind Driven Self-Excited Induction Generator Drives


We report a hysteresis current controller which is used to reduce current harmonics in the wind powered SEIG system. The proposed wind energy conversion system can be modelled and the parameters are verified under the varying wind speed ranges. The overall efficiency of the system can be affected from non-linear inputs and the selection of controllers for harmonic reductions. The controller is used to control the hysteresis band in the current ripple and produced required output voltage. Hysteresis current controller is modelled and the current harmonic interruption is reduced for the wind energy system applications. The system components like Wind Driven SEIG, Rectifier and Hysteresis Current Controller are modeled using MATLAB/Simulink and the experimental results are verified.
