Abstract

The brushless doubly fed induction generator (BDFIG) shows commercial promise for wind power generation due to its lower cost and higher reliability when compared with the conventional DFIG. In the most recent grid codes, wind generators are required to be able to ride through a low-voltage fault and meet the reactive current demand from the grid. A low-voltage ride-through (LVRT) capability is therefore important for wind generators which are integrated into the grid. In this paper, the authors propose a control strategy enabling the BDFIG to successfully ride through a symmetrical voltage dip. The control strategy has been implemented on a 250-kW BDFIG, and the experimental results indicate that the LVRT is possible without a crowbar. © 1982-2012 IEEE.
