This paper proposes a Wind Turbine Emulator (WTE) using an Indirect Field Oriented (IFO) Induction Motor (IM). The IM drive can be controlled as a conventional prime mover in speed mode, or a wind turbine in torque-speed mode via robust observed torque control. This paper presents key issues for establishing a high-performance IFO IM drive. Further, this study develops a wind turbine load Interior Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Generator (IPMSG) followed by a three-phase Vienna Switch-Mode Rectifier (SMR). It receives mechanical driven power from the WTE and establishes a 400V DC-link for the DC micro-grid. The good generating characteristics are achieved through proper controls of both the IPMSG and SMR. Various wind turbine torque-speed and power-speed characteristic curves under different wind speeds can be emulated by the developed WTE. The designed results are verified by simulations. The measured results indicate that the errors are within 1.5% and 1.0%, respectively, for the torque and the power compared to the designed ones. The maximum power point tracking (MPPT) function with good performance for the PMSG with Vienna SMR is achieved using the perturb and observation (P&O) approach. The dynamic and steady-state operating characteristics of the developed whole turbine emulator driven PMSG system are assessed experimentally.

1. Introduction

In recent years, renewable energy sources [1,2,3,4] are being utilized to reduce fossil fuel consumption. A photovoltaic cell and wind generator are the most popularly used renewable sources. Some interconnected applications for wind turbines with grid, energy storage systems, and electric vehicles were presented [5,6,7,8]. The survey for comparative characteristics of various types of wind generators and their interface power converters has been given in an earlier study [9]. Owing to the high power density, the PMSG is chosen as the wind generator for testing the developed turbine emulator. The proper commutation is set to effectively use the reluctance power component.

In order to facilitate the research on wind generating systems, a wind turbine emulator (WTE) is needed. Many studies have proposed suitable WTEs for various wind generator system characteristics [10,11,12,13]. Basically, any electric motor [14,15] can be employed to construct a WTE. Some WTEs using permanent-magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) [16,17] and induction motor [18,19,20,21,22,23] have been developed. However, the WTE with desirable wind generating characteristics is not easy to achieve. Compared to other electric motors, IM has advantages of rigid structure, being magnet-free, low cost, ease of making field-weakening, suitability for high-speed operation, and a few more.

Basically, the high-performance induction motor drives can be classified into field-oriented control [24,25,26,27] and observed torque control [28,29]. Both are sensitive to the changes in motor parameters; thus, they need accurate parameters. In the developed WTE, the indirect field-oriented (IFO) induction motor is employed with adequate field current setting and accurate motor parameters using the proposed measurement approach. The established motor drive can be operated in speed mode for a conventional prime mover or in torque mode for emulating a wind turbine.

SMR is a crucial active front-end for the plants drawing power from the AC sources. Earlier studies [30,31] present the surveys for single-phase and three-phase SMRs. The three-phase Vienna SMR [31,32,33,34] provides the features of complete power factor PWM control flexibility using only three switches, lower switching losses for three-level voltage switching, and unidirectional power flow capability. For the established WTE system, the adoption in the load PMSG followed interface is for the unidirectional power requirement.

For a wind generating system, the application of the Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) control extracts the maximum wind energy and converts it to electric energy using the generator. Earlier studies [35,36,37,38,39] proposed numerous MPPT algorithms. The designing of the P&O control scheme is for the developed WTE-driven wind PMSG with followed Vienna SMR.

This paper proposes a developed wind turbine emulator established using an IFO induction motor. The designed wind turbine torque-speed and power-speed characteristics according to the specific wind turbine mechanical data and the employed IM ratings are presented and verified by simulation and measured results. The developed WTE can drive any category of the generator. IPMSG with Vienna SMR coupled to the turbine emulator shaft serves as its test load. The emulator controlling is similar to the desirable conventional turbine and wind turbine, which is done by the properly designed IFO IM drive with robust observed torque control. The verification of the operating characteristics of the established IM drive-based WTE and the PMSG based wind generator is experimentally done.

2. System Configuration

Figure 1 depicts the typical configuration system of a DC micro-grid. All wind generators, PV sources, and energy stored devices must be interfaced to the common DC bus by suited AC/DC or DC/DC converters. Further, the bus using DC/DC converters or inverters powers the loads. An electrical vehicle (EV) and the specific battery energy storage systems (BESS) can be incorporated into the micro-grid for exchanging their energies and enhancing the supplying power quality of micro-grid. In addition, the DC micro-grid can be connected to the utility grid using a bidirectional inverter through a synchronization process.

Among the most employed renewable sources are the wind-generators. Figure 2 shows a typical wind AC-generator with a fully-rated converter. A back-to-back AC/AC converter connects the stator of a wind turbine-driven induction generator (IG) or PMSG to the grid.

Figure 2 Typical configuration of a wind turbine emulator-driven generator system.

Emulating the wind generator system, depicted in the upper part of Figure 2, requires a turbine emulator and a test load generator. The lower panel in Figure 2 illustrates the typical configuration of a wind turbine emulator-driven generator system. Any category of the motor can be the actuator of the turbine emulator. In the developed emulator, the IM is adopted. The key issues for IM IFO mechanism, current and speed controls, and robust observed torque control are well addressed. The developed IM drive can successfully act as a conventional fixed-speed prime mover or a variable-speed wind turbine. The developed WTE can drive any category of the wind generator. An IPMSG is used as the load generator, which is followed by a unidirectional Vienna SMR.

A wind generator following AC/DC converter requires only unidirectional power, and consequently, the Vienna SMR possesses the best-compromised characteristics. First, only three power switches are required to achieve sinusoidal armature current waveform with nearly unity power factor and low THDi. Next, the inherent three-level voltage switching yields lower switching losses. Lastly, the inherent bipolar DC voltage output can naturally establish the microgrid bipolar DC bus.

Figure 3 shows the developed wind turbine emulator-based IM drive. The turbine emulator shaft coupled to IPMSG followed by Vienna SMR serves as the test load. Figure 4 depicts the control scheme of the IFO induction motor drive.

Figure 4 Control scheme of the developed prime mover emulator IFO induction motor drive.

As depicted in Figure 4, the IM driven emulator can operate as a conventional prime mover in speed mode or torque mode for wind turbine:

(1) Speed mode: Placing the switch in Figure 4 at position A. The outer speed loop yields the torque current command i ( q s ) .

(2) Torque mode: Placing the switch at position B. Regulating the tracking error between the observed torque T e ´ and its command T e the command i ( q s ) , generated by the modeled wind torque-speed curve to represent the wind turbine driving behavior. Properly set slip angular speed command and the field-current command allow high torque development in the IFO IM drive.

The developed WTE can be employed to drive any types of generator. In order to test the developed wind turbine emulator, a load PMSG followed by Vienna SMR, as shown in Figure 3, is constructed to establish the DC microgrid common DC-bus voltage with proper regulation. A load resistor across the bus is used for the test load. The designed PMSG system can be controlled under the voltage mode for the conventional generator or the MPPT mode for the wind generator. While conducting the MPPT control, the maximization of the Vienna SMR DC-link power is achieved.

3.Induction Motor Driven Wind Turbine Emulator

3.1 Power Circuit

a. Induction motor: Rating on the employed motor is 4-pole, 60Hz, 150V, 2.2 kW, 10.4A, and 1740 rpm.

b. Velocity sensing scheme: The incremental encoder (A, B, Z) signals with 1000pluses/rev yield the sensed rotor speed.

c. PWM inverter: Constructed using three IGBT modules CM100DY-12H (Mitsubishi, V C E S =600V, I C =100A(continuous), and I C =200A(pulsed)).

d. Inverter input source: The DC-link of motor drive inverter is powered using commercialized DC power supply with V d c =400V. If the WTE powered by the mains is desired, one can adopt a SMR front-end. The Vienna SMR may also be a good choice for the reasons of unidirectional power requirement and the least power switch number being used in achieving good line drawn power quality.

3.2 Indirect Field-Oriented Mechanism

For an IFO induction motor, setting the following slip angular command achieves decoupling control:

\[ \omega _{s1}^{*}=\frac{{{R}_{r}}}{{{L}_{r}}}\frac{i_{qs}^{*}}{i_{ds}^{*}}\triangleq \frac{1}{{{T}_{r}}}\frac{i_{qs}^{*}}{i_{ds}^{*}} \tag{1} \]

Here Rr is rotor resistance per-phase, Lr is rotor inductance per-phase, and Tr is rotor time-constant. Setting the actual rotor parameters in the field-orientation scheme can result in the following phenomena: (i) λqr=0 and λqr/dt = 0; (ii) The rotor flux becomes λ r = λ ( d r ) = ( L m λ ( d r ) ) / ( 1 + s T r ) L m i ( d s ) , as the electric time-constant Tr is generally much smaller to the mechanical time constant; and (iii) The induction motor developed torque, and the mechanical equation is as follows:

\[ \begin{matrix} {{T}_{e}}=\left( \frac{3P}{4}\frac{L_{m}^{2}}{{{L}_{r}}}i_{ds}^{*} \right)i_{qs}^{*}={{T}_{L}}+B{{\omega }_{r}}+J\frac{d}{dt}{{\omega }_{r}} \\ \end{matrix} \tag{2} \]

Here P is pole number, Lm is magnetizing inductance, TL is load torque, B is total damping coefficients, and J is total inertia-constant.

  • D-axis current setting: Using the rated data and the measured NLT data, the d-axis current commands become:

ω r ω b ( ω b = b a s e s p e e d ) :

\[ i_{ds}^{*}=i_{dsb}^{*}=\frac{\sqrt{2}\left( \frac{{{V}_{l,~rated}}}{\sqrt{3}} \right)-{{i}_{qs,NL}}{{R}_{s}}}{{{L}_{s}}{{\omega }_{e}}}\approx \frac{\sqrt{2}\left( \frac{{{V}_{l,~rated}}}{\sqrt{3}} \right)}{{{L}_{s}}\left( \frac{P\pi }{60}\frac{{{N}_{rated}}}{1-{{S}_{rated}}} \right)}\\ \tag{3} \] \[ {{\omega }_{r}}>{{\omega }_{b}}:i_{ds}^{*}=\frac{i_{dsb}^{*}}{{{\omega }_{r,pu}}},{{\omega }_{r,pu}}=\frac{{{\omega }_{r}}}{{{\omega }_{b}}} \\ \tag{4} \]

Here the simple 1/ ω r field-weakening approach is adopted. The rated line-to-line voltage Vrated = 150V and iqs,NLRs are neglected owing to their small value at no load, Srated is the rated slip, known from the given ratings of an induction motor, and Nrated is the rated rotor speed.

3.3 Induction Motor Parameter Estimation

It is well-known that the IFO control behavior for an IM is greatly affected by the field current command i d s and the rotor parameters set in the ω s l . The observed torque for torque mode control is also related to the parameters Lm and Lr.

Normally, the IM phase equivalent circuit parameters are measured from the no-load test (NLT) under rated voltage and frequency, and the blocked-rotor test (BRT) with reduced frequency. However, the commercialized AC power supply with sufficiently low frequency is not readily available. To overcome this difficulty, a parameter estimation mechanism is proposed (Figure 5(a) to 5(c)), where the constructed inverter (Figure 3) performs the NLT under the voltage-mode with rated flux and the BRT under current-mode with rated current and sufficiently low frequency.

Measured Results: The blocked-rotor test measured a-phase armature current under 10.34A (RMS)/5Hz, and Figure 5(d) shows the plotted command with a very close current tracking waveform. All measured data are listed below:

  • DC-test: Rs=0.8Ω
  • NLT: Vnl=150.14V/60Hz , Inl=4.913A,Pnl=82.68W
  • BRT: Vbr=25.13V/5Hz, Ibr=10.34A, Pbr=415.14W

Using the data, following the standard estimation procedure, the estimated equivalent circuit parameters are:

Rs=0.8Ω, Rr=0.4943Ω, Lls= 4.3098 mH, Lm= 42.488 mH, Llr= 4.3098 mH, Lr= 46.7978 mH.

3.4 Control Schemes

The design procedures of all controllers are neglected due to the limit of scope. The summary of designed controllers is as follows:

3.4.1 Ramp-Comparison Current Controlled PWM Scheme

The current loop control block of the developed standard IM drive in d-q domain is shown in Figure 4. And the ramp-comparison current-controlled PWM (RC-CCPWM) scheme is adopted here. Both the d-axis and q-axis current feedback controllers are set to be identical with

\[ {{G}_{ci}}\left( s \right)={{K}_{Pi}}+\frac{{{K}_{Ii}}}{s} \tag{5} \]

The upper limit of Kpi is found first using large signal stability criterion expressed as follows:

\[ \frac{d}{dt}{{\nu }_{cq}}\le \frac{d{{\nu }_{tri}}}{dt} \tag{6} \]

By letting Gci = Kpi, Figure 4 and equation (6) provides the following equation:

\[ \left( \frac{dv_{cq}}{dt} = \frac{d\epsilon i_{qs}}{dt} K_{pi} = \frac{\nu_{qs}}{L_{s}}K_{i}K_{pi} \right) \leq \frac{dv_{tri}}{dt} \tag{7} \]

The related system parameters of the established motor drive are switching frequency fs 20 kHz, Vtri/dt= 40 kV/s, Ki = 0.05V/A, Ld=Lq=Lls+Lm=46.8mH, Vdc= 400V, and Vqs Vdc/2 = 200V. Using the known parameters, the limit of Kpi from equation (7) is as follows:

\[ {{K}_{Pi}}\le 187.2 \tag{8} \]

Accordingly, Kpi = 4.33 and selection of integral gain by trial-and-error yields:

\[ {{G}_{ci}}\left( s \right)={{K}_{Pi}}+\frac{{{K}_{Ii}}}{s}=4.33+\frac{50}{s} \tag{9} \]

3.4.2 Speed Feedback Controller

For simplicity, the selected speed controller is also chosen to be PI type with its parameters being determined via trial-and-error as:

\[ {{G}_{c\omega }}\left( s \right)={{K}_{P\omega }}+\frac{{{K}_{I\omega }}}{s}=4.5+\frac{6.47}{s} \tag{10} \]

3.4.3 Torque Controller

Feedback Controller. The observed torque is obtained from equation (2), and the PI torque feedback controller is as follows:

\[ {{G}_{cT}}\left( s \right)={{K}_{PT}}+\frac{{{K}_{IT}}}{s}=2.5+\frac{70.5}{s} \tag{11} \]

Torque Robust Error Cancellation Controller (TRECC). To enhance the torque control robustness, a simple TRECC, as shown in Figure 4, is added with the robust weighting function being:

\[ {{W}_{T}}\left( s \right)=\frac{{{W}_{T}}}{1+{{\tau }_{{{T}^{S}}}}},~0\le {{W}_{T}}\le 1 \tag{12} \]

where ΤT = 1.592 x 10-3 is set. Through derivation one can find that the voltage tracking error εT yielded by feedback control can only be reduced to (1-WT (s)) εT≈ (1-WT) εT by adding the TRECC. However, the control effort i q s will be magnified to i q s / ( 1 W t ) Thus, the compromised state in control performance and resulting control effect must be considered.

3.5 Modeling of Wind Turbine Output Characteristics

Generally, the developed torque-speed (Te - ωr) and power-speed (Pe - ωr) characteristics of a wind turbine depend on the specific mechanical design, especially the power coefficient. The known data provided from the vendor can be used to program the (Te - ωr) and (Pe - ωr) curves for a wind turbine. Although the mathematical modeling is carried out by the assumed parameters, the derived modeling process is generalized and can easily be modified according to the specified data.

The programmed torque-speed (Pe - ωr) curves for a given wind speed of the developed wind turbine emulator, from equation [1] are as follows:

\[ {{T}_{e}}=\left( -{{K}_{max}} \right)\omega _{r}^{2}+\left( 2{{K}_{max}}{{\omega }_{mt}} \right){{\omega }_{r}} \tag{13} \] \[ {{\omega }_{mt}}=100{{\nu }_{w}}+200,~{{\omega }_{mt}}\ge 700rpm \tag{14} \]

Where ωr is rotor speed in rpm, νw is wind-speed in m/s, and ωmt is rotor speed in rpm at which the maximum torque occurs. The relationship in equation (14) is arbitrary. Besides, the determination of constant Kmax is done at the rated speed (= 1740rpm) and the rated torque (= 12.07N·m) of the employed IM, which is as follows:

\[ {{K}_{max}}={}^{12.07}/{}_{{{1740}^{2}}}=3.986\times {{10}^{-6}}~N{}^{m}/{}_{{{\left( rpm \right)}^{2}}} \tag{15} \]

The maximum torque under a wind speed ωw is as follows:

\[ T_{max} = K_{max} \left( \omega_{mt} \right)^{2} = 3.986 \times 10^{-6} \left( \omega_{mt} \right)^{2} \tag{16} \]

The power-speed (Pe-ωr) curves for a given wind speed ωw, from equation (13), is as follows:

\[ {{P}_{e}}={{T}_{e}}\left( \frac{2\pi }{60} \right){{\omega }_{r}}\left( N-m \right)\left( {}^{rad}/{}_{s} \right) \tag{17} \]

The optimal power and the corresponding optimal torque ωr = ωopt for a given wind speed νw are as follows:

\[ {{P}_{opt}}={{K}_{opt,p}}{{\left( {{\omega }_{opt}} \right)}^{3}},{{T}_{opt}}={{K}_{opt,t}}{{\left( {{\omega }_{opt}} \right)}^{2}}, \] \[ {{K}_{opt,t}}=1.959\times {{10}^{-6}},{{K}_{opt,p}}=2.0919\times {{10}^{-7}} \tag{18} \]

The relationship between ωmt and ωopt is:

\[ {{\omega }_{opt}}=1.333{{\omega }_{mt}} \tag{19} \]

3.5.1 The Designed Torque Curves

From equations (13) and (14), using the related system parameters, the designed curves under various wind speeds are as follows:


\[ {{T}_{e}}=-\text{3}\text{.986}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{6}}\omega _{r}^{2}+\text{0}\text{.005979}{{\omega }_{r}}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{5}\text{.5m/s}\; \] \[ {{T}_{e}}=-\text{3}\text{.986}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{6}}\omega _{r}^{2}+\text{0}\text{.0067762}{{\omega }_{r}}\text{,} {{\text{v}}_{\text{w}}}=\text{6}\text{.5m/s} \]

\[ {{T}_{e}}=-\text{3}\text{.986}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{6}}\omega _{r}^{2}+\text{0}\text{.007573}{{\omega }_{r}}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{7}\text{.5m/s} \; \] \[ {{T}_{e}}=-\text{3}\text{.986}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-6}\omega _{r}^{2}+\text{0}\text{.008371}{{\omega }_{r}} \, {{v}_{w}}=\text{8}\text{.5m/s} \]

\[ {{T}_{e}}=-\text{3}\text{.986}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{6}}\omega _{r}^{2}+\text{0}\text{.009168}{{\omega }_{r}}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{9}\text{.5m/s} \; \] \[ {{T}_{e}}=-\text{3}\text{.986}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{6}}\omega _{r}^{2}+\text{0}\text{.009965}{{\omega }_{r}}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{10}\text{.5m/s} \]

3.5.2 The Designed Power Curves

Equation (13) provides the following designed curves under seven wind speeds, which are as follows:

\[ {{P}_{e}}=-\text{4}\text{.1741}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{7}}\omega _{r}^{3}+\text{6}\text{.2612}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{4}}\omega _{r}^{2}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{5}\text{.5m/s} \] \[ {{P}_{e}}=-\text{4}\text{.1741}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-7}\omega _{r}^{3}+\text{7}\text{.096}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-4}\omega _{r}^{2}, {{v}_{w}}=\text{6}\text{.5m/s} \]

\[ {{P}_{e}}=-\text{4}\text{.1741}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{7}}\omega _{r}^{3}+\text{7}\text{.93}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{4}}\omega _{r}^{2}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{7}\text{.5m/s} \] \[ {{P}_{e}}=-\text{4}\text{.1741}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{7}}\omega _{r}^{3}+\text{8}\text{.7656}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{4}}\omega _{r}^{2}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{8}\text{.5m/s} \]

\[ {{P}_{e}}=-\text{4}\text{.1741}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{7}}\omega _{r}^{3}+\text{9}\text{.6}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{4}}\omega _{r}^{2}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{9}\text{.5m/s} \] \[ {{P}_{e}}=-\text{4}\text{.1741}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{7}}\omega _{r}^{3}+\text{1}\text{.043}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{3}}\omega _{r}^{2}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{10}\text{.5m/s} \]

\[ {{P}_{e}}=-\text{4}\text{.1741}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{7}}\omega _{r}^{3}+\text{1}\text{.127}\times \text{10}_{{}}^{-\text{3}}\omega _{r}^{2}\text{,} {{v}_{w}}=\text{11}\text{.5m/s} \]

4. Load Wind PMSG

4.1 Wind PMSG

  • The employed PMSG is rated as three-phase 4-pole, 4500 rpm, 1.7 kW, and 3.92N·m. The estimated data are as follows: peak value of flux linkage λ m = 0.13Wb, phase winding resistance Rs = 0.73 Ω, q-axis inductance Lq = 7.031 mH, and d-axis inductance Ld = 4.2 mH, which belongs to interior PMSG (IPMSG). Further, Ls= (Lq + Ld)/2 = 5.62mH the average winding inductance Ls = (Lq + Ld)/2 = 5.62 mH.
  • Position sensing scheme: Incremental encoder has (A, B, Z) signals with 1000 pulses/rev.
  • Voltage and current sensing factors: Kv=0.0025V/V and Ki=0.043V/A

4.2 PMSG Followed Three-phase Vienna SMR

4.2.1 Power Circuit

The key features of the Vienna SMR are:

  • Three-phase AC inputs: Equal to the back-EMFs of the employed IPMSG with Eas = 25.71 Vrms/krpm, which changes with rotor speed.
  • Output: Vd = 400V, Pd = 1.5kW.
  • Energy storage inductors: Employing the PMSG embedded armature winding inductances as the Vienna boost inductors.
  • Cd1 = Cd2= 2200 µF/450V.
  • PWM switching frequency: fs = 30kHz.
  • Power devices: The rectifier module VUN 25-05E (500V,ID25 = 35A(25oC), ID85=25A(85oC), IDM=95A(pulsed)) manufactured by IXYS. 

4.2.2 Control Schemes

Commutation scheme. As shown in Figure 6, to achieve better SMR control characteristics, the current-command is generated by the unit vectors, synchronized with the IPMSG-generated back electromotive forces based on the sensed rotor position. The developed torque of an IPMSG is as follows:

\[ {{T}_{e}}=\frac{3}{2}\frac{P}{2}\left[ \lambda _{m}^{'}{{{\hat{I}}}_{as}}\cos \beta +\left( \frac{{{L}_{d}}-{{L}_{q}}}{2} \right)\hat{I}_{as}^{2}\sin 2\beta \right] \tag{20} \]

where I ^ a s = i q s 2 + i d s 2 and β denotes the shifted angle of a-phase current phasor relative to the sensed q-axis. To achieve the maximum developed torque, T e / β = 0 can yield the commutation shift angle as follows:

\[ \beta ={{\beta }_{max}}={{\sin }^{-1}}\frac{-\lambda _{m}^{'}+\sqrt{\lambda _{m}^{'2}+8{{\left( {{L}_{q}}-{{L}_{d}} \right)}^{2}}\hat{I}_{as}^{2}}}{4\left( {{L}_{q}}-{{L}_{d}} \right){{{\hat{I}}}_{as}}} \tag{21} \]

Current and Voltage Controllers.

(i) Ramp-comparison current-controlled PWM scheme

Figure 6 depicts the ramp-comparison current-controlled PWM (RC-CCPWM) scheme, and the PI-type feedback controller is as follows:

\[ {{G}_{ci}}\left( s \right)={{K}_{Pi}}+\frac{{{K}_{Ii}}}{s} \tag{22} \]

The upper limit Kpi using large-signal stability criterion is as follows:

\[ \frac{d{{\nu }_{cont}}}{dt}={{K}_{Pi}}{{K}_{i}}\frac{\left| {{V}_{d}}-\left| {{e}_{as}} \right| \right|}{{{L}_{s}}}<\frac{d{{\nu }_{tri}}}{dt} \tag{23} \]

The system parameters of the established Vienna SMR are νd = 400V, Ki = 0.05v/A, fs = 30kHz, Ls=5.62mHz , and dνtri/dt = 60kV/s. Hence, the upper limit , Kpi from equation (23), by setting eas=0v is as follows:

\[ {{K}_{Pi}}<\left( {{{\bar{K}}}_{Pi}}=\frac{d{{\nu }_{tri}}}{dt}\times \frac{{{L}_{s}}}{{{V}_{d}}{{K}_{i}}}=16.89 \right) \tag{24} \]

Accordingly, Kpi = 10.63 and trial-and-error can design the integral gain yields:

\[ {{G}_{ci}}\left( s \right)={{K}_{Pi}}+\frac{{{K}_{Ii}}}{s}=10.63+\frac{52}{s} \tag{25} \]

The selected digital control sampling rate for the current-loop is fsi= 30kHz.

The control block depicted in Figure 7(a) approximately represents the voltage loop dynamic model of the Vienna SMR, with the sensing factor being denoted as:

\[ {{K}_{\nu }}\left( s \right)=\frac{{{K}_{\nu }}}{1+{{\tau }_{\nu }}s}=\frac{0.002}{1+1.32\times {{10}^{-3}}s}\approx {{K}_{\nu }} \tag{26} \]

The SMR dynamic model is approximately represented by the first-order process after filtering the high-frequency components of voltage ripples. Figure 7(b) sketches the desired voltage regulation response due to a step load power change. The labeled three typical points are (   t 1 = t f , Δ v d c 1 = 0.5 Δ v d m   ) , (   t 2 = t m , Δ v d c 2 = Δ v d m   )     and ( t 3 = t r e , Δ v d c 3 = 0.1 Δ v d m with tf = falling time, tm = maximum dip occurred time, tre =restoration time, and Δ v d m = maximum-voltage dip.

The brief design procedure is as follows:

  • Dynamic model estimation

The SMR operates stably for ( v d = 400 V,      R d = 300  Ω   ) . Figure 7(b) depicts the response shape of the PI voltage feedback controller G c v ( s ) = K P v + K I v / s = 1 + 10 / s . The νd due to a load change Rd=300 Ω->187.5Ω (ΔPd=320W ) is measured, and the three response points (-14.4V, 29 ms), (–28.8V, 132.5 ms), and (-2.9V, 860 ms) are employed to derive the following dynamic model parameters of the SMR:

\[ {{K}_{pl}}=5.296\times {{10}^{-4}},a=5.46053,b=3738.84 \tag{27} \]

  • Controller quantitative design

At the given operating point νd=400V and Rd=300Ω, the voltage regulation control specifications are νm=10.5V and tre=0.56s for a step power change of ΔPd = 320W(Rd = 300 Ω -> 187.5Ω). The careful derivation can obtain the following PI feedback controller:

\[ {{G}_{c\nu }}\left( s \right)={{K}_{P\nu }}+\frac{{{K}_{I\nu }}}{s}=5.8+\frac{30}{s} \tag{28} \]

Figures 8(a) and 8(b) compares the simulated and measured Δd due to the similar load resistance change Rd = 300 Ω -> 187.5 Ω. The closeness of the results is apparent.

4.3 MPPT Control Scheme

The Vienna SMR DC-link output power is observed and used for making the MPPT control. It is obtained as: ${{{P}'}_{d}}={{{v}'}_{d}}{{{i}'}_{d}}$ with the sensing factors being set as ${{K}_{i}}=0.2\text{V/A}$ and ${{K}_{v}}=0.00222\text{V/V}$.

The perturb and observe (P&O) control with variable step size using the SMR current command ${{\hat{I}}_{i}}$ as control variable is made according to the changes of ${{P}_{d}}$ and rotor speed.

As shown in Figure 9, the MPPT algorithm is judged one time per second, and the linguistic rules are set as: (i) Case 1: The generated power increases and rotor speed decreases to let $d{{\hat{I}}_{i}}>0$; (ii) Case 2: The generated power decreases and rotor speed decreases to let $d{{\hat{I}}_{i}}<0$; (iii) Case 3: The generated power decreases and rotor speed increases to let $d{{\hat{I}}_{i}}<0$; (iv) Case 4: The generated power decreases and rotor speed increases to let $d{{\hat{I}}_{i}}>0$.; (v) Case 5: The generated power is unchanged hence letting $d{{\hat{I}}_{i}}=0$.

5. Experimental Results

5.1 IFO IM Drive Speed-mode Characteristics

The switch in Figure 4 is at position that allows the developed IFO IM drive to be operational under the speed mode. Figure 10(a) shows the measured $\left(\omega_{r}^{*}, \omega_{r}^{\prime}\right)$ and $\left(i_{q s}^{*}, i_{q s}^{\prime}\right)$ during the starting process $\left(\omega_{r}^{*}=0 \rightarrow 1800 \mathrm{rpm}\right)$ with the ramping rates of 225 rpm/s and 450 rpm/s at ($v_{d c}$ = 400V, $R_{d}=10 \Omega$). Figure 10(b) depicts the measured $\left(\omega_{r}^{*}, \omega_{r}^{\prime}\right)$ and $\left(i_{q s}^{*}, i_{q s}^{\prime}\right)$ $\omega_{r}^{*}=1800 \mathrm{rpm}, v_{d c}=$ =400V, and, Rd = 85.7Ω, due to a step speed command change of 100 rpm.

5.2 IFO IM Driven Wind Turbine Emulated Characteristics

The IM drive in torque mode is evaluated first. Figure 11 plots the measured torques and the resulting torque current commands of the IFO IM drive $\left(R_{d}=120 \Omega\right)$ due to a step torque command change $T_{e}^{*}=2 \mathrm{Nm} \rightarrow 3 \mathrm{~N} \cdot \mathrm{m}$ by PI feedback control without and with torque robust tracking error cancellation control. The results indicate that the fast torque can be obtained by choosing the larger value of robust weighting factor $W_{T}$, subject to having larger torque current command. Taking the compromised considerations is $W_{T}$ is $0.5$.

The developed IFO IM-driven wind turbine emulator drives the IPMSG with Vienna SMR. The emulator follows the designed wind torque curve to present a desirable wind turbine driving behavior for the driven IPMSG.

Figure 12(a) shows the simulated torque curves for seven values $v_{w}$, and Figure 12(b) depicts the simulated power curves. In Figure 12(a), the corresponding optimal (speed, torque) points are also labeled. As shown in Figure 12(a), since the generated torque is zero at a standstill, it is started from the speed-control mode and then changed to the torque-control mode. When the control mode is set at toque-control mode, the torque current command $i_{q s}^{*}$ signal changes from (A) to (B) as depicted in Figure 4.

Under the same conditions, Figures 13(a) and 13(b) depict the measured results of the established IFO IM-driven wind turbine emulator. Accordingly, closeness between measured and simulated results and the correctness of the designed wind turbine emulator are seen.

(ii) The measured values show that respective errors are lower than 1.5% (at 950rpm, (3.577–3.53)/3.577=1.314%) and 1.0% (at 1266rpm, (424–420)/424=0.943%) for the torque and the power compared to the designed ones.

5.3 IPMSG Operating Characteristics

To evaluate the MPPT control, the switch SW in Figure 6 is set at position (D). to determine the Vienna SMR current command $\hat{I}_{i}$ by the MPPT control scheme. The wind turbine emulator operates under the torque-speed mode, and the taking wind speed is $v_{w}=8.5 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$. Figures 14(a) and 14(b) show the measured $\left(\omega_{r}^{\prime}, P_{e}, T_{e}\right)$ and $\left(v_{d}, i_{d}, P_{d}, i_{a n}\right)$ at $R_{d}=85.74 \Omega$. Figures 15(a) and 15(b) depict the results under $v_{w}=9.5 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$ and $R_{d}=85.74 \Omega$. After several steps of the tuning process, the results indicate that the generated power by the wind turbine emulator converges at the maximum power points. The rotor speeds and the generated torques controlling are near the designed levels. On the generator side, the armature current generates maximum power for the connected load, and this verifies the correctness of the proposed MPPT control.

The wind speed changes from $v_{w}=9.5 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$ to $v_{w}=8.5 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}$, and Figures 16(a) and 16(b) show the measured $\left(\omega_{r}^{\prime}, P_{e}, T_{e}\right)$ and $\left(v_{d}, i_{d}, P_{d}, i_{a n}\right)$ under the dynamic MPPT tracking operation. It also presents superior dynamic tracking characteristics.

6. Conclusions

Wind turbine emulator is beneficial for conducting research on micro-grid. This paper presented the development of a wind turbine emulator using IFO IM drive. The desirable IM driving characteristics are preserved by properly treating its field-orientation mechanism with accurate rotor parameters and applying robust torque control. The conventional prime mover speed mode and the wind turbine torque-speed mode can be successfully operated by the developed IM driven emulator. The developed wind turbine emulator can be used to drive any type of generator. A test load with IPMSG followed by a three-phase Vienna SMR has been established and driven by the turbine emulator to establish the DC micro-grid common DC-bus voltage. Various wind turbine torque-speed characteristic curves under different wind speeds can be correctly generated by the developed wind turbine emulator. The designed results were verified by simulations, which indicated that the errors are within 1.5% and 1.0%, respectively, for the torque and power, compared to the designed ones. The MPPT for extracting the wind generating power can be achieved by the IPMSG followed by Vienna SMR using the P&O control approach. The effectiveness of the developed whole emulator has been verified experimentally, including its dynamic MPPT tracking operating characteristics.
