Introduction to Doubly-Fed Induction Generator for Wind Power Applications

  title={Introduction to Doubly-Fed Induction Generator for Wind Power Applications},
  author={Jin Yang},
This chapter introduces the operation and control of a Doubly-fed Induction Generator (DFIG) system. The DFIG is currently the system of choice for multi-MW wind turbines. The aerodynamic system must be capable of operating over a wide wind speed range in order to achieve optimum aerodynamic efficiency by tracking the optimum tip-speed ratio. Therefore, the generator’s rotor must be able to operate at a variable rotational speed. The DFIG system therefore operates in both suband super… CONTINUE READING
