This paper deals with vector control (VC) of an emerging brushless doubly-fed reluctance (BDFRG) technology for large-scale wind turbines. The BDFRG has been receiving promising attention due to its low operation and maintenance costs afforded by the use of partially-rated power electronics, and the high reliability of brushless construction, while offering performance competitive to its traditional slipring counterpart, the doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG).
A robust VC control scheme has been developed for a custom designed BDFRG fed from a conventional ‘back-to-back’ IGBT converter. The preliminary studies have evaluated the algorithm under the maximum power factor control (MPFC) conditions which allow the improved efficiency of the generator-converter set and the entire wind energy conversion systems (WECS).
