NONLINEAR PREDICTIVE CONTROL OF WIND ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEM USING DFIG WITH AERODYNAMIC TORQUE OBSERVER

Kamel Ouari – Mohand Ouhrouche – Toufik Rekioua – Taib Nabil

   In order to improvement of the performances for wind energy conversions systems (WECS), an advanced control techniques must be used. In this paper, as an alternative to conventional PI-type control methods, a nonlinear predictive control (NPC) approach is developed for DFIG-based wind turbine. To enhance the robustness of the controller, a disturbance observer is designed to estimate the aerodynamic torque which is considered as an unknown perturbation. An explicitly analytical form of the optimal predictive controller is given consequently on-line optimization is not necessary The DFIG is fed through the rotor windings by a back-to-back converter controlled by Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), where the stator winding is directly connected to the grid. The presented simulation results show a good performance in trajectory tracking of the proposed strategy and rejection of disturbances is successfully achieved.

Keywords: nonlinear predictive control, DFIG-based wind turbine, disturbance observer
