Vienna Rectifier-Based Control of a PMSG Wind Turbine Generator


Vienna converters have several advantages, including low construction costs, improved total harmonics, and considerable reliability. Generally, they are used in applications with a high switching frequency, particularly in telecommunications, and their use in power generation systems is recent but promising. They can be an interesting solution for medium and large wind power systems as they have the advantage of a high power density compared to traditional two-level converters. In this paper, a wind energy production system based on a Vienna rectifier and the permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) is proposed. The main objective of this work is to evaluate the performance of the vector control strategy of the PMSG associated with the Vienna rectifier considering the real conditions of wind power systems. The feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed control strategy are evaluated through the simulations in MATLAB/Simulink and experimental tests based on a laboratory prototype. The outcomes present interesting performances in terms of dynamics and stability.
