This paper presents a ride-through simulation study of a 2-MW wind-power doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) under a short-term unsymmetrical network disturbance. The DFIG is represented by an analytical two-axis model with constant lumped parameters and by a finite element method (FEM)-based model. The model of the DFIG is coupled with the model of the(More)
The harmony search (HS) method is a popular meta-heuristic optimization algorithm, which has been extensively employed to handle various engineering problems. However, it sometimes fails to offer a satisfactory convergence performance under certain circumstances. In this paper, we propose and study a hybrid HS approach, HS–PBIL, by merging the HS together(More)
The online monitoring of induction motors is becoming increasingly important. The main difficulty in this task is the lack of an accurate analytical model to describe a faulty motor. A fuzzy logic approach may help to diagnose induction motor faults. This work presents a reliable method for the detection of stator winding faults (which make up 38% of(More)
The ability of the electromagnetic flux measured in various locations of a 35-kW cage induction motor to provide useful information about faults was investigated. The usefulness of this monitoring parameter was assessed in comparison with some other electrical parameters used for fault detection, such as stator phase current and circulating currents between(More)

Transient performance of a 1.7-MW wind-power doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) under network disturbances is studied using a coupled field-circuit simulator. The simulator consists of the finite-element method model of a DFIG coupled with the circuit model of the frequency converter, a transformer, and a simple model of the network. The simulation(More)

The aim of this research was to discover the best indicators of induction motor faults, as well as suitable techniques for monitoring the condition of induction motors. Numerical magnetic field analysis was used with the objective of generating reliable virtual data to be analysed with modern signal processing and soft-computing techniques. In the first(More)
