PROJECT TITLE :
Design of mode switching scheme for low-voltage ride-through of doubly fed induction generators
A mode switching doubly fed induction generator (MSDFIG) scheme is proposed for the purpose of achieving low-voltage ride-through for wind turbines. The MSDFIG operates as a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) under normal condition but upon the detection of a low-voltage incident, the generator is to smoothly transfer to operate under the induction generator mode through the switching in of a set of stator-side crowbar. The MSDFIG automatically reverts back to the DFIG mode when network voltage recovers. A new strategy on the control of the crowbar resistance is included. Analysis shows that the proposed MSDFIG scheme can ride through the complete low-voltage and voltage recovery stages. Effectiveness of the scheme is demonstrated through simulation and experiment studies.
