Operation and control of multilevel current source converters for wind energy conversion system and STATCOM applications
Large Wind Turbines (WTs), exceeding 10 MW, are expected to become more available in the near future. Most large WTs utilize Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators (PMSGs) to convert the mechanical power of the WT into electrical power. One of the most important components in a Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) is the Power Electronics Interface (PEI). The PEI converts the AC power produced by the WT generator, with a magnitude and frequency that varies with the wind speed, into AC power with a fixed frequency that can be injected into the grid. The most common PEI is the Back-to-Back Voltage ...
