A Review on Wind Turbine and Wind Generator Used in WECS

Authors(2) :-Nitish Kumar Singh, Dashrath Kumar

The applications of wind energy develop much rapidly than the other renewable resources such as solar, geothermal and so on in the 21st century. It becomes the third core energy resource following non-conventional fuels as oil and chemical. Electrical energy generated by wind power plants is the best ever developing and most promising renewable energy source. The wind is a clean, free and limitless energy source. Wind Energy Generation Systems (WECS) are confront with increasing demands for power quality and harmonic distortion control. With the advance in power electronics technology, the fast growth of variable speed WECS is now witness. However, the power quality still remains an important issue to be addressed thoroughly by researchers. This paper presents a comparative study on grid connected WECS having two different Wind Turbine Generator Systems (WTGS) using DFIG and PMSG.
