Operation of doubly fed induction generator in ocean wave energy conversion system by stator phase sequence switching

This paper presents operation of a Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) to extract oscillatory power from ocean wave energy converter (WEC). DFIG has the advantage of generating power at both sub-synchronous and super-synchronous speed with only slip power to be handled by power converter at rotor side. At super-synchronous speed the rotor generates slip… CONTINUE READING
