A Reactive Power Based Reference Model for Adaptive Control Strategy in a SEIG

M. A. Taghikhani, A. D. Farahani

Abstract


In this paper, a new control strategy is proposed for a three-phase squirrel-cage self-excited induction generator (SEIG) connected to a variable speed wind turbine in autonomous mode. In order to improve the dynamic performance of the mentioned vector control system, a model reference adaptive controller is used for online rotor time constant estimation. Thus, the main drawbacks of this method, which include the effects of the changes in machine parameters on rotor flux estimation, slip speed, the creation of instability problems and the system leaving vector control mode, are resolved. In this control strategy, a PI controller is used to control the dc voltage and three similar hysteresis current controllers (HCC) are used to control the switching of IGBTs. The results of the dynamic simulation indicate the desirable performance of the proposed system.
