Abstract


  • This paper presents a simple methodology to

    improve the low voltage ride-through (LVRT) capability of

    Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based wind turbines in

    order to ride through higher voltage sags and durations. The

    proposed method is based on selection of an appropriate value

    for DC side super capacitor (SC) in such a way that it could help

    wind turbine for LVRT without any need to crowbar protection.

    The operation of SC based wind turbine in normal and fault

    conditions is simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK. The

    simulation results show that the proposed method can be used

    effectively for LVRT improvement and it is not necessary to use

    crowbar in fault conditions.
