Abstract

This investigation presents the implementation and simulation of a Simulink-based controlled permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) wind turbine in the dq0 reference frame. The model consists of a current control subsystem, a PMSG model, a mechanical subsystem, a pitch angle controller and a wind turbine model. The current control subsystem makes use of PI controllers governing the wind turbine speed, the direct and quadrature stator currents and the pitch angle of the turbine blades. The pitch angle controller measures the speed and the active power from the generator limiting both in case of high-speed wind conditions. In order to verify the functioning and the effectiveness of the proposed controllers, simulations- for different operation conditions- are presented and discussed.
