The book also provides in-depth steady-state and dynamic analysis of squirrel cage induction generator, doubly fed induction generator, and synchronous generator based wind energy systems.
Another popular generator used in WPPs is the doubly fed induction generator [14]-[19], but it will not be overviewed in this article.
Recognizing the rising attraction of offshore wind energy farms, this graduate text introduces the design and operation of doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) wind turbines, fully-rated converter wind turbines, offshore wind farm electrical systems, options for fault protection, controllers for load mitigation, and energy storage systems.
Both distribution line and wind turbine (or other renewable energy converter) are connected to a smart clutch and the output is connected to an induction generator.
The wind turbine model is composed of three sub models connected together, aerodynamic rotor, drive train and induction generator models.
These product series feature the time tested Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) technology which is designed to maximise energy yield and unlock the potential of low wind sites.
