Frequency Regulation for Windmills
Chuck Kocian and Tim Glubaskas
Advisor: Dr. R. Jetton
In its normal operation, a windmill generates power at varying frequencies
depending on the rotation of the windmill's blades. In this project a three
phase sinusoidal signal is sent into the windmill generator that corrects
this frequency to the U.S. standard of sixty hertz. The system consists
of three main modules. The first converts the output frequency of the system
to a respective voltage. The second module is a microprocessor controlled
sinusoidal generator, with three-phase output. The third module comprises
power amplifiers which produce the current fed back into the generator.
