Model Of A Wind Generation System
Several schemes for AC to DC conversion and DC to AC conversion for a wind
generation system have been investigated and are in the process of being
built. The fan blade/generator of the wind generator is modeled using a
DC motor/AC machine configuration with the AC machine set up as an alternator.
The AC to DC conversion was successfully accomplished by connecting a diode
bridge rectifier to the output terminals of the AC machine. Pulse Width
Modulation is used in corroboration with a switching circuit and a transformer
in order to achieve the DC to AC conversion.
