ABSTRACT
Fully hydraulic wind power generation is an emerging research direction. These hydraulic wind power generators replace the rigid connection between wind turbine and generator with a hydraulic flexible transmission system. This effectively absorbs a majority of the fluctuating load from the wind turbine, thereby achieving step less speed change and enabling the generator within the unit to maintain stable rotational speeds. The fully hydraulic wind power generator is different from the traditional wind power generators in terms of the transmission system used. As a result, the research here is focused on the transmission characteristics of the hydraulic system. Moreover, the transmission characteristics of the fully hydraulic wind turbine were compared to wind turbines with a mechanical transmission, from the analysis of the comparison different operating characteristics were revealed. The experiments using a test bench to study the full hydraulic wind power generator, whereas simulations using a model were carried out for the wind power generator with the mechanical transmission.
