Abstract:

With the advance of power electronics, direct-driven permanent magnet synchronous generators have drawn increased interest to wind turbine manufacturers due to its advantages over other variable-speed wind turbines. This article studies permanent magnet synchronous generator characteristics under the general d-q control strategy in the rotor-flux-oriented frame so as to benefit the development of advanced permanent magnet synchronous generator control technology. Compared to traditional approaches, the specific features of the article are (1) a steady-state permanent magnet synchronous generator model in a d-q reference frame, (2) a simulation mechanism that reflects the general permanent magnet synchronous generator d-q control strategy, (3) an integrative study that combines generator-converted power with extracted wind power characteristics, and (4) a joint investigation incorporating both steady-state and transient evaluations. Extensive simulation-based analysis is conducted to study how permanent magnet synchronous generator characteristics are affected by different d-q control conditions and are interacted with wind power drive characteristics in power generation and speed regulation of a permanent magnet synchronous generator wind turbine.
