Abstract:

This paper describes modeling and simulation of Wind Electric Generator (WEG) comprising a pitch controlled Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT) coupled to squirrel cage induction generator through a gear. The generic issue of VAR drain from the grid by the generator is tackled by the use of Static VAR Compensators (SVC). The paper presents the results of the dynamic performance of the complete system under varying wind conditions. The model accommodates the effects of wind turbulence and the simulation is carried out using MATLAB - SIMULINK 7.1.
