Modeling and Control of a Variable Speed Variable Pitch Angle Prototype Wind Turbine
AbstractThis paper focuses on modeling, control and simulation of a 500 KW horizontal axis prototype wind turbine that is being developed in the context of the MILRES (National Wind Energy Systems) Project in Turkey. The prototype turbine is designed as variable speed variable pitch angle wind turbine due to its advantages in efficiency and the structure. Aerodynamic, mechanical and electrical subsystems along with pitch and torque controllers are designed in both Matlab/Simulink and S4WT simulation environments. The main control purpose is to generate a power curve that is close to the ideal power curve where the power is limited to the nomial value above the nominal wind speed. Turbism is integrated with both environments to generate a realistic wind profile of Kaimal turbulence model. The performance analysis of the prototype turbine is done under the power production scenario in both environments, Start up, emergency stop, shut down and parked scenarios are also implemented in S4WT.
