Title: OPEN-CODE, REAL-TIME EMULATION TESTBED OF GRID-CONNECTED TYPE-3 WIND TURBINE SYSTEM WITH HARDWARE VALIDATION

Abstract

This paper presents the design and development of an open-code Type-3 wind turbine virtual-testbed for real-time simulations. The proposed testbed includes the bare code for all the models required to emulate a Type-3 wind turbine system: the Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) dynamic model, single-mass drive train, wind turbine system, and average model of the back to back power. This testbed can be executed in PC-layer for offline simulations or can be executed in real-time on the National Instruments (NI)-CompactRIO (cRIO) platform. The discrete-time models are implemented on the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), using LabVIEW, and validated against a physical hardware setup. The emulated stator and rotor currents and DC-link voltage are compared against physical measurements creating a validated platform independent from third-party models and suitable for applications in real-time. The proposed testbed is intended to be available to researchers, wind turbine manufacturers, and utility companies to perform tests using a validated platform to verify proposed control designs of DFIG wind turbines.
