Title: Control and Analysis for a Self-Excited Induction Generator for Wind Turbine and Electrolyzer Applications

Abstract

Self-Excited Induction Generation(SEIG) is very rugged, simple, lightweight, and it is easy and inexpensive to implement, very simple to control, and requires a very little maintenance. In this variable-speed operation, the SEIG needs a power electronics interface to convert from the variable frequency output voltage of the generator to a DC output voltage for battery or other DC applications. In our study, a SEIG is connected to the power electronics interface such as diode rectifier and DC/DC converter and then an electrolyzer is connected as a final DC load for fuel cell applications. An equivalent circuit model for an electrolyzer is utilized for our application. The control and analysis for the proposed system is carried out by using PSCAD and MATLAB software. This study would be useful for designing and control analysis of power interface circuits for SEIG for a variable speed wind turbine generation with fuel cell applications before the actual implementation.
