  journal={IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics},
Reliability and availability levels are crucial aspects for assessing the economic viability of wind energy conversion systems. Therefore, fault-tolerant systems can make a valuable contribution. This paper presents a fault-tolerant permanent-magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) drive employing new direct control techniques. For postfault operation, a direct power control (DPC) of a four-switch three-phase converter and a direct torque control of a three-switch three-phase rectifier are proposed… CONTINUE READING
