Switching Control of Wind Turbine Sub-Controllers Based on an Active Disturbance Rejection Technique
AbstractWind power generation systems require complex control systems with multiple working conditions and multiple controllers. Under different operating conditions, switching without disturbancebetweenthesub-controllersplaysacriticalroleinensuringthestabilityofpowersystems. The sub-controllers of two typical cases in the permanent magnet direct drive (PMDD) wind turbine running process are studied, one is the proportional integral (PI) controller in the maximum power points tracking (MPPT) stage, the other is the fuzzy pitch angle controller in the constant power stage. The switching strategy of the two sub-controllers is the emphasis in this research. Based on the active disturbance rejection control (ADRC), the switching mode of the sub-controllers is proposed, which can effectively restrain the sudden changes of the rotor current during the switching process, and improve the quality of power generation. The feasibility and effectiveness of the sub-controller switching strategy is veriﬁed by Matlab/Simulink simulation for a 2 MW PMDD wind turbine. View Full-Text
