Z-source converter based grid-interface for variable-speed permanent magnet wind turbine generators
Vilathgamuwa, D. Mahinda, Xiaoyu, Wang, & Gajanayake, Chandana Jayampathi (2008) Z-source converter based grid-interface for variable-speed permanent magnet wind turbine generators. In Proceedings of the IEEE Power Electronics Specialists Conference, 2008. PESC 2008, IEEE, Rhodes, Greece, pp. 4545-4550.
A Z-source inverter based grid-interface for a variable-speed wind turbine connected to a permanent magnet synchronous generator is proposed. A control system is designed to harvest maximum wind energy under varied wind conditions with the use of the permanent magnet synchronous generator, diode-rectifier and Z-source inverter. Control systems for speed regulation of the generator and for DC- and AC- sides of the Z-source inverter are investigated using computer simulations and laboratory experiments. Simulation and experimental results verify the efficacy of the proposed approach.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
