PROJECT TITLE :
An Offshore Wind Generation Scheme With a High-Voltage Hybrid Generator, HVDC Interconnections, and Transmission
A replacement offshore high-voltage dc (HVDC) wind generation theme is proposed in this paper. The scheme implements a high-voltage hybrid generator (HG) plus HVDC interconnection and transmission systems. The turbine power train of the proposed system is compared with a typical system installed in an exceedingly industrial wind farm. The analyses demonstrate enhancements in system losses and, hence, potency, power-train hardware, together with cable system mass and, importantly, a discount in major component count and installed power electronics within the nacelle and turbine tower, options that lead to reduced capital cost and maintenance. The resulting power conversion system is a lot of simplified and a lot of amenable to higher voltage implementation since it's not constrained by existing state-of-art power-electronic voltage supply converter structures. Voltage control is facilitated via dc/dc converters located removed from the turbine tower. To demonstrate the HG operational concept, measured results from a low-power laboratory prototype HG system are compared with analytical results and show good agreement.
