At a given wind velocity, the mechanical power available from a wind turbine is a function of its shaft speed. To maximize the power captured from the wind, the shaft speed has to be controlled. In low-cost wind energy conversion systems, the turbine shaft speed is not regulated and a squirrel-cage induction generator is used to convert the turbine mechanical power to electric power. Power electronic converters are used to interface the induction generator with the grid and maximize the power… CONTINUE READING
