The wind turbine's direct power control of the doubly-fed induction generator

Ben Ali Hammoudi, Hicham Serhoud


The study suggests a comprehensive approach to modeling and controlling variable-speed wind turbine systems that utilize doubly fed induction generators (DFIGs). To make sure that energy is transferred efficiently between the DFIG rotor and the grid, a two-level inverter with perfect bidirectional switches is used. Using the tip speed ratio algorithm and taking into consideration the randomness in wind speed, the maximum power at the wind turbine is optimized. Then, the control strategy utilizes direct power control (DPC) due to its various advantages. The advantages of employing this control technique are manifold. Firstly, it eliminates the necessity for rotor current control loops. Secondly, it obviates the need for controllers such as PI controllers to manage torque and flux. Furthermore, it has yielded exceptional simulation results when implementing direct power control (DPC) within the MATLAB/Simulink environment, specifically in the context of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) wind power system.
