Abstract:

WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE VARIOUS CONTROL METHODS BY WHICH THE POWER FACTOR OF AN INDUCTION GENERATOR CAN BE REGULATED TO ACHIEVE ENCHANCED POWER CONVERSION EFFICIENCY. IN PARTICULAR, THIS STUDY WILL FOCUS UPON VARIABLE GENERATOR TERMINAL VOLTAGE CONTROL TO ACCOMPLISH THESE GOALS. VARIOUSCONTROL STRATEGIES WILL BE DEVELOPED IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY THE MOST COST-EFFECTIVE AND RELIABLE METHODS FOR TESTING ANDCOMMERCIALIZATION. ESTIMATES OF INCREASES IN GENERATOR EFFICIENCY, POWER OUTPUT AND ENERGY CAPTURE, ALONG WITH ANY ADDITIONAL OPERATIONAL BENEFITS WILL BE DETERMINED BY UTILIZATION OF THE CONTROL SCHEMES DEVELOPED. THE FINAL PRODUCT OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL YIELD A MEANS BY WHICHWIND TURBINE GENERATORS CAN BE MAINTAINED AT NEAR CONSTANT EFFICIENCY THROUGHOUT THEIR ENTIRE OPERATING SPECTRUM.
