Electric Power Components and Systems (Impact Factor: 0.62). 01/2002; 30(2):199-216. DOI: 10.1080/153250002753427851

ABSTRACT This paper presents the analysis and design of a Direct Torque Control (DTC) of a Doubly-Fed Induction Generator applied to a wind generation system as an alternative to the classical field-oriented control (FOC) widely used in drive control. The aims of the control system are the control of the reactive power interchanged between the generator and the grid and the control of the power drawn from the wind turbine in order to track the wind turbine optimum operation point. DTC appeared as a control concept for squirrel cage motor drives. In this paper, DTC concept is applied to control a wound rotor induction generator by means of a rotor connected VSI. Torque and rotor flux control are used to control in an indirect way active and reactive power, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, the Authors present a Direct Torque Control of Salient Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) and Motor (PMSM) associated to a wind turbine water pumping system. The turbine is used to drive the PMSG in order to feed an isolated load composed of a PMSM and a hydraulic centrifuge pump. It receives the required active power from the generator through a force commutated rectifier, a PWM buck converter, a DC bus and an inverter. The models of the PMSG, the PMSM, the force commutated rectifier, the DC bus, the buck converter and the inverter are developed and used in the control scheme. The way of computing the flux level from the torque command is developed on the basis of direct current equal to zero. Mathematical relations treating these terms are detailed and studied. The dynamic performances of the turbine, the generator, the motor and the converters are analyzed. The simulation results have shown that the proposed methodology is an efficient solution of a fully control system.
