ABSTRACT
In renewable power generation the wind energy has been noted as the most rapidly growing technology; it attracts interest as one of the most cost-effective ways to generate electricity from renewable sources. Wind generation system has potential application for the grid support. The voltage of the direct driven permanent magnet wind generators (PMSG) is variable due to the intermittent nature of the wind energy. Fluctuating voltage and power is of major concern in the converter based grid connected wind generation systems. An inverter is essential for the interfacing of the wind source with the AC network. There are many possible inverter topologies and inverter switching schemes and each one will have its own relative advantages and disadvantages. Variable speed permanent magnet synchronous generators are used for maximum power extraction from the wind energy conversion system. This paper discusses the interconnection issues of these generators to local grid as per prevailing grid standards during healthy and fault conditions. The fault ride-through topology for PMSG has been demonstrated using MATLAB Simulink based simulation.
