Improving Performance for Full-Bridge Inverter of Wind Energy Conversion System Using a Fast and Efficient Control Technique
AbstractThis paper proposes a fast and efficient control technique with application to a full-bridge inverter of a wind energy conversion system that is capable of yielding better performance in transience and steady state. The presented control technique is made up of a finite-time convergent SMGL (sliding-mode guidance law) and a Fourier nonlinear grey Bernoulli model (FNGBM). The finite-time convergent SMGL provides a faster convergence rate of system states, as well as a singularity-free solution. However, in case the overestimation/underestimation of the uncertain system boundary occurs, the chatter/steady-state error may exist in finite-time convergent SMGL and then causes serious harmonic distortion at the full-bridge inverter output. An efficient calculational FNGBM is integrated into the finite-time convergent SMGL, thus overcoming chatter/steady-state error problems if the estimated value of the uncertain system boundary cannot be satisfied. Simulation results indicate that the proposed control technique leads to low total harmonic distortion under nonlinear loading and fast dynamic response under transient loading. Experimental results from a full-bridge inverter prototype are given to confirm the simulation results and the mathematical analyses. Because the proposed full-bridge inverter offers significant advantages over the classical finite-time convergent sliding-mode controlled full-bridge inverter in terms of convergent speed, calculational efficiency, and harmonic distortion removal, this paper will be a feasible reference for wind energy systems or other renewable energy systems in future research; for example, for photovoltaic systems and fuel cell systems.
