This paper introduces an advanced monitoring and diagnosis system for the detection of incipient electrical faults in doubly fed induction generators used in wind turbines. In this application, the rotor is supplied by a static converter for the control of active and reactive power flows from the generator to the electrical grid. A new diagnostic method(More)
A maximum power point tracking algorithm for single-stage converters connecting photovoltaic (PV) panels to a single-phase grid is presented in this paper. The algorithm is based on the application of the "ripple correlation control" using as perturbation signals the current and voltage low-frequency oscillations introduced in the PV panels by the(More)
A novel conversion structure for photovoltaic (PV) grid connection is proposed in this paper. The conversion system is aimed to be relatively simple and effective in medium and high power range. The topology utilizes a dual two-level voltage source inverter (VSI), fed by two insulated PV fields, supplying a grid transformer with open-end connection. Use of(More)
A multilevel inverter topology feeding a three-phase open-end winding machine is analyzed in this paper. The scheme is based on the use of two insulated DC supplies, each one feeding a standard two-level three-phase inverter. The three-phase six-wire winding is connected across the output terminals of the two inverters. A new modulation technique that is(More)
A novel quad-inverter configuration for multiphase multi-level ac motor drives is analyzed in this paper. The proposed scheme is based on four conventional 2-level three-phase voltage source inverters (VSIs) supplying the open-end windings of a dual three-phase motor (asymmetric six-phase machine), quadrupling the power capability of a single VSI with given(More)
A drive based on a wound rotor synchronous machine (WR-SM) is proposed as traction system of electric vehicle. The main features of the proposed drive system are the capability to generate high torque at very low speed without excessive overload of the stator windings and to operate theoretically at constant power until unlimited speed. The analysis of the(More)
The detection of rotor faults in squirrel cage motors has long been an important but difficult matter in the area of electrical machine diagnosis. Under time-varying condition, the typical rotor fault frequency components (RFFCs), which appear in the phase current spectrum of faulted motors, are spread in a bandwidth proportional to the speed variation and(More)
The paper introduces an advanced monitoring and diagnosis system for the detection of incipient electrical faults in doubly fed induction generators (DFIGs) used in wind generator systems. In this application the rotor power is supplied by a converter for the control of active and reactive power flow from the generator to the mains. The paper deals with a(More)
