Abstract: Connecting variable speed wind turbine connected to the grid requires a proper control of the inverter to improve the power quality for the system. The vector control of an inverter connected to the grid is presented. The proposed control technique implies a hysteresis current controller in the inner loop. The complete control system has been developed, analysed, and validated by simulation study. Performance has then been evaluated in detail.
Keywords: variable speed; hysteresis controllers; inverters; harmonics; vector control; wind energy; wind power; wind turbines; simulation.
