Abstract

The performance of grid-connected wind turbine systems that use a Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) is explored in this work. In the suggested configuration, two conversion stages are present. In the first step, Alternating Current (AC) voltage is changed into Direct Current (DC) voltage. At this point, the conventional two-level converter is implemented. The second stage involves the conversion of DC to AC using a five-level Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC). Voltage fluctuation is observed in the DC link. It is anticipated that the Fuzzy Logic Control (FLC) approach will be able to adjust the DC link voltage at the MMC of the second stage of conversion. For the purpose of the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) system, the current controller is accountable for regulating the current signals and the reference signals. As a result, the PI Controller (PIC) is being evaluated for use in this function. Carrier-based Phase Disposition (PD) PWM is employed for MMC switch control. The proposed controllers’ performance is validated in Matlab/Simulink.
