Abstract: Currently, the Brushless Dual-Fed Induction Machines (BDFIMs) are very often used in Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECSs). The features of BDFIM are its high reliability due to its brushless operation, and the related lower capital and operational costs. This paper presents a field-oriented control algorithm for a Brushless Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (BDFIG). The proposed decoupled control is determined on the Power-Winding (PW) stator-flux frame and can be employed for controlling the rotation speed and its reactive power. In order, to avoid the use of an anemometer with speed sensors and to maximize wind energy extraction. Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) based on Optimal Torque Control (OTC) is proposed. Several simulation results under different operating conditions are provided in order to prove the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
Keywords: Brushless Doubly-Fed Induction Machine (BDFIM), WECS, Vector Control, MPPT, Optimal Torque Control (OTC).
