PWM-based Controller of Output Voltage for WindDriven Individual Self-Excited Induction Generator


Background/Objectives: The objective of this research owes to propose a fixed voltage controller for wind energy based individual Self-Excited Induction Generator (SEIG). The ideology is that simple as to exploit the use of a voltage source inverter, employing with the fundamental principle of PWM technique that in corporate an individual battery source for the smooth operation. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The incidence of depressed voltage regulation because of the unexpected alteration in the speed and the load is one of the main demerits of the SEIG. In order to overcome this complicated situation, a modification of phase shift in the sinusoidal PWM is introduced, which standardizes the voltage of SEIG, when it is subjected to unexpected alteration in the load. Findings: It is likely to attain a fixed value of voltage when the load is altered from empty load to the complete load. The simulation of the presented scheme has been carried out by MATLAB/SIMULINK modeling. The consistency of the proposed model is determined by the outcomes of the prototype testing. Application/Improvements: By varying the modulating index of the voltage source inverter, the stabilization of output voltage for SEIG has been achieved. One of its major advantages is that by simply checking the dc link voltage, the characteristics of the current state can be predictable.
