Power Comparability Analysis of DFIG and SCIG based Wind Farm

Authors(3) :-Vishal Vaman Mehtre, Shripad Ganapati Desai, Prof. Dr. D. S. Bankar

The rapid depletion of conventional sources for power generation necessitates the need of renewable energy power plants. Renewable sources primarily wind and solar are available free of cost and counts for cleaner source of energy thereby reducing environmental concern. The potential of wind energy needs to be harnessed effectively for optimum power generation. Present research aims at comparison of wind power performance characteristics utilizing squirrel cage induction generator (SCIG) and doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) focusing on load flow analysis, active power at various wind speeds and reactive power analysis. The simulation and analysis pinpoints the suitable generator at various wind speeds to consummate for selection in a distinct wind farm. The evaluation consisted identical operating conditions and control schemes.
