    A new control method of three-phase PMSG wind turbine connected to single-phase network through a Back-to-Back converter

    , Article Asia-Pacific Power and Energy Engineering Conference, APPEEC ; 2011 ; 21574839 (ISSN) ; 9781424462551 (ISBN) Shamsnia, A ; Hojabri, H ; Mokhtari, H ; Chang, L ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, a new control strategy is proposed to improve the performance of a wind generator system composed of a three-phase PMSG and a Back-to-Back three-phase to single-phase converter. With the use of the large inductance of the synchronous generator, the control method minimizes the generator torque ripple when the system supplies a single-phase load. The problem arises from the fact that the instantaneous power of a single-phase load is pulsating at the double of the system frequency. This paper tries to minimize the effect of this pulsating power on the PMSG torque without using a large capacitor on the DC link. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed method. ©... 

    A new control strategy for a multi-bus MV microgrid under unbalanced conditions

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Power Systems ; Volume 27, Issue 4 , 2012 , Pages 2225-2232 ; 08858950 (ISSN) Hamzeh, M ; Karimi, H ; Mokhtari, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper proposes a new control strategy for the islanded operation of a multi-bus medium voltage (MV) microgrid. The microgrid consists of several dispatchable electronically-coupled distributed generation (DG) units. Each DG unit supplies a local load which can be unbalanced due to the inclusion of single-phase loads. The proposed control strategy of each DG comprises a proportional resonance (PR) controller with an adjustable resonance frequency, a droop control strategy, and a negative-sequence impedance controller (NSIC). The PR and droop controllers are, respectively, used to regulate the load voltage and share the average power components among the DG units. The NSIC is used to...
