A different configuration of brushless doubly-fed induction generator is presented. The power electronic converters are mounted on the rotor rotating with it. The slip rings and carbon brushes are replaced by a rotating exciter which serves as a slip recovery device as well as a means of providing excitation to the rotor of the induction generator. The(More)
A new configuration for the self-excitation of the induction machine invented by Magnus Lindmark is presented. The power electronic converter using solid state switches is connected to the rotor while the stator is directly connected to the grid. Using appropriate control, the reactive power consumed by the motor can be generated in the rotor resulting in(More)
This paper deals with a 3-dimensional development of a thermal model of a power electronic converter mounted on the generator shaft and rotating with it. The dimensions of the heat sink are determined and the temperature gradients of the converter, its heat sink, and shaft during natural and forced convection are analyzed for variable rotor speeds. It is(More)
This paper presents the synchronous operation of a novel generator termed as the rotating power electronic brushless doubly-fed induction generator (RPE-BDFIG). It is shown that the generator operates well at the synchronous speed of the main machine, delivering the desired power to the grid. Furthermore, it is illustrated that the RPE-BDFIG behaves similar(More)
Impact of the different magnitudes of symmetrical voltage dip on the performance of a Rotating Power Electronic Brushless Doubly-Fed Induction Generator is presented. This type of topology consists of a doubly-fed induction generator with power electronic converter and an integrated exciter mounted on the shaft and rotating with it. The transient simulation(More)
