What is it about?

In this paper, a one-cycle control (OCC)-based approach for wind turbines equipped with doubly fed induction generators (DFIGs) is presented. The OCC is used to control back-to-back converter which includes generator-side converter and grid-side converter. The former is used for regulating generator speed, and the latter is used for controlling reactive power. Also, particle swarm optimization is used to improve the accuracy of parameters of PI controllers. The proposed approach is studied under different conditions, including load change, fault and nonlinear loads. Also, uncertainty of wind speed is considered. Moreover, a comparison between pulse width modulation (PWM)-based and OCC-based controllers is done. The OCC is a non-linear PWM method so its control technique turns a non-linear switch into a linear path. In contrast to the traditional PWM method, OCC control realizes PWM and fast/nonlinear control simultaneously by modulating the slope of the saw-tooth waveform. The simulation results show that accuracy and speed control of DFIG converter by OCC are superior in comparison with conventional control strategies from tracking reference signal and oscillations point of view.
