This paper presents a new flexible arrangement of static converters for grid-connected wind energy conversion systems (WECS). The proposed arrangement uses three-phase voltage-fed back-to-back mass-produced power converter modules with reconfiguration switches. The main features of the proposed flexible arrangement are as follows: 1) expanded reactive power capability limits; 2) high efficiency, mainly under low wind conditions where the active power is reduced; and 3) low current harmonic… CONTINUE READING
