A pulsewidth modulation (PWM) current source wind energy conversion system based on a parallel configuration for high voltage direct current application is proposed. A comparison between the parallel and series configurations for current source-based systems is investigated, which shows the merits of the proposed system. A new control technique for the PWM current source inverter is proposed. It can effectively control the average dc-link voltage with a feed-forward loop, while independently controlling reactive power according to grid code requirements. The system simulation confirms the performance of the proposed system with no interaction between wind turbine modules and satisfying performance with grid integration. Practical implementation further verifies the proposed inverter control. Finally, a brief comparison between conventional line-commutated converter-based systems and the proposed PWM current source converter-based system is presented.
