TitelOperation of Double Fed Induction Generators with Unmodified Low Cost Standard Converters
KonferenzPESC 2006, 37th IEEE Power Electronics Specialists Conference, PELS
AbstractThis paper presents how to operate a double fed induction generator (DFIG) with a rated power of approximately 30kW with unmodified low cost standard converters. The stator of the machine is directly connected to the grid and the rotor is fed with variable voltage and frequency from two standard low cost voltage source converters. Actually such machines are used in wind generators with a rated power of more than 500 kW with special build converters. In the presented solution the rotor of the DFIG is fed with two DC-Link connected standard voltage source converters. The original software is designed to calculate speed and phase of the rotor by receiving a speed signal from the rotor shaft. Therefore it is necessary to add two small application modules to modify the firmware externally to realize the calculation of slip frequency and phase in real time. The equivalent network parameters of the DFIG are determined by the converter itself by using an autotune function. With this parameters it is possible to develop an analytical model of the system to set up a closed loop active and reactive power control. The test system provides the ability to control both power types decoupled and with an approximately linear characteristic.
