An LVRT Scheme for Grid Connected DFIG Based WECS Using State Feedback Linearization Control Technique
AbstractThis paper primarily focuses on an advance control strategy to enhance the low voltage ride through (LVRT) capability in doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind energy conversion system (WCES). In the proposed control strategy, the captured wind energy during grid faults circumstances is stored timidly in the rotor’s inertia kinetic energy. Though a minimal amount of energy is available in the grid, stator current and DC-link voltage are set beneath the perilous levels. However, both the required stator voltage and stator current are kept within a tolerable range of rotor side converter (RSC), through state feedback linearization technique for maintaining the accurate control to suppress the overvoltage and overcurrent. Furthermore, stator current oscillations are significantly suppressed during fault transient. The input mechanical energy from the wind turbine can be resumed after the fault clearance. In spite of being dissipated in the resistors of crowbar circuit, as in the conventional LVRT assemblies, torque balancing among electrical and mechanical measures is attained; DC-link voltage instabilities and rotor speed inconsistencies are substantially reduced. As a result, a noticeable reduction in the requirement of reactive power and swift restoration of terminal voltage on fault clearance is acquired successfully. Correspondingly, several tests are conducted to validate the effectiveness and enhancement in the performance of the DFIG based wind farms, when the proposed control strategy is implemented over it during numerous fault ride-through circumstances.
