Novel Power Converter Topologies for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators (PMSG) Used in Wind Energy Conversion Systems WECS

Sujith M, Mr (IFET College of Engineering, India)

Power Electronic Converters plays an important role in integrating the renewable energy source to the grid. In this paper, permanent magnet synchronous generator based wind energy conversion systems (WECS) is considered for evaluating the different power converter topologies and control strategy. The comparative study carried out in Matlab/Simulink for various power converter topologies. This study impacts that the study of converter and proposed control strategy help to find the suitable converter for improving the power quality in compare with other power converter topology. The results of three simulations for back-to-back Voltage Source Converter (VSC) converter, multilevel Neutral Point Clamped (NPC) converter and matrix converter topology are presented and compared.
