The Modeling and Dynamic Characteristics of a Variable Speed Wind Turbine

Godswill Ofualagba, Emmanuel Ubeku


In this paper, a functional structure of a wind energy conversion system is introduced, before making a comparison between the two typical wind turbine operating schemes in operation, namely constant-speed wind turbine and variable-speed wind turbine. In addition, the modeling and dynamic behavior of a variable speed wind turbine with pitch control capability is explained in detail and the turbine performance curves are simulated in the MATLAB/simulink.

Keywords: Drives, energy conversion, modeling, power systems, turbines, wind energy, velocity control.
