Investigation of inertial support limits in wind turbines and the effects on the power system stability
Duymaz, Erencan; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
In this study, the inertial support implementation is studied for variable speed wind turbines with a full-scale power electronics. To increase the active power as desired, Machine Side Converter is modified with an additional control loop. In the first part of the thesis, active power of the wind turbine is increased to the limits and the maximum achievable active power is found out to be restricted by the wind speed. It is found that the wind turbine can increase its output power by 40% of rated power in ...
Dynamic modelling and simulation of a wind turbine
Altuğ, Ayşe Hazal; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
In this thesis, a dynamic model for a horizontal axis wind turbine is developed for an upwind configuration using the MATLAB/Simulink environment. Blade Element Momentum Theory is used to model the rotor. It is assumed that the rotor blades are rigid and wind speed is uniform. Aerodynamic and gravitational forces are calculated as distributed loads. Verification of the model is done by using the LMS Samtech, Samcef for Wind Turbines software. Aerodynamic properties of the blades, sectional loads and moments...
Dynamic modeling, control and adaptive envelope protection system for horizontal axiswind turbines
Şahin, Mustafa; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2018)
In this thesis study, a wind turbine envelope protection system is introduced to protect turbines throughout the below and above rated regions. The proposed protection system, which is based on a neural network, adapts to various turbines and operational conditions. It can keep the turbine within pre-defined envelope limits whenever a safe operation is about to be violated. The avoidance is realized by control limiting technique applied to the blade pitch controller output, thereby adjusting the blade pitch...
An open source tool to estimate mass and efficiency of wind turbine power take-off systems
Keysan, Ozan (2013-12-01)
This paper presents mass and efficiency estimations for wind turbine drive-train components. Data from literature and commercial catalogues are collected to obtain trend lines for each component. Different gearbox and generator types are investigated as well as the bearing and the low-speed shaft. An open-source tool is presented to compare different power take-off options in terms of weight and efficiency. The datasets and the user interface made available as an open source tool and can be accessed at GitHub.
Analysis of a Wind Energy Conversion System with Doubly-Fed Induction Generator in healthy and Fault Condition via Simulation
Giaourakis, Dimitrios G.; Safacas, Athanasios N.; Tsotoulidis, Savvas (2011-09-10)
In this paper, a wind energy conversion system that uses the "Cascade technology" especially the structure of Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) is presented and analyzed. Moreover, a simulation of this wind energy conversion system under fault conditions in MATLAB/SIMULINK is done and the results are evaluated. Open-circuit faults in one IGBT or in two IGBTs are studied.
