Abstract

Wind turbine driven doubly-fed induction generators (DFIGs) are widely used in the wind power industry. With the increasing penetration of wind farms, analysis of their effect on power systems has become a critical requirement. This paper presents the modeling of wind turbine driven DFIGs using the conventional vector controls in a detailed model of a DFIG that represents power electronics (PE) converters with device level models and proposes an average model eliminating the PE converters. The PSCAD/EMTDC™ (4.6) electromagnetic transient simulation software is used to develop the detailed and the proposing average model of a DFIG. The comparison of the two models reveals that the designed average DFIG model is adequate for simulating and analyzing most of the transient conditions. View Full-Text
