Title Controller parameters design of doubly feed induction generator using Particle Swarm Optimization
Author Hasan Fayazi Boroujeni, Ahmad Memaripour, Meysam Eghtedari, Elahe Behzadipour
The integration of wind farms into the electricity grid has become an important challenge for the utilization and control of electric power systems, because of the fluctuating and intermittent behavior of wind power generation. Doubly fed induction generators (DFIG) are commonly used wind turbine generators (WTG) in electricity networks. In DFIG there are three control loops which should be implemented in order to appropriate performance of WTG. These control loops are pitch angle control, rotor speed control and voltage control. In this paper a unified scheme is used to adjust these controllers in the same time. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is used to adjustment the proposed controllers. The results of wind power on the system performance are compared with a conventional thermal power plant.
