Wind Turbine Emulator Implementation using FPGA

Adithya S [2] | Arathi Reghu | Devika Murali | Dona Sabu

Abstract: In wind energy technology, a wind turbine is used to convert the kinetic energy of wind to mechanical energy. Due to its bulky nature and top height, study of wind turbines has become troublesome. Moreover, arbitrary nature of wind adds to the problem. For this paper, study and performance analysis of the wind turbine under various wind speed and pitch angle is done by creating a model, called wind turbine emulator. Here, the model is realized through a separately excited dc motor operating with a dc-dc converter circuit and controlled through pulses generated using FPGA. Thus, motor drive is made to behave like a wind turbine. A dc generator is coupled to the motor. The motor rotates the generator. Validation of the suggested model is done through analysis of the torque and power responses for various wind speeds, comparison of the emulator?s performance with established wind turbine characteristics based on design specification.
