Bhim Singh, S. S. Murthy and Sushma Gupta
Abstract--This paper describes the mathematical modelling of selfexcited induction generators (SEIGs) with are improved electronic load controller (IELC) for microhydel applications supplying variety of loads. In small hydro plants, governor unit of turbine can be eliminated using IELC, which is simple and cost effective. The improved electronic load controller is a combination of a three-phase insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) based current controlled voltage source inverter (CC-VSI) and a high frequency DC chopper which keeps the generated voltage and frequency constant in spite of change of balanced/unbalanced loads. A dynamic model of the SEIGIELC suppling different types of loads using stationary d-q axes reference frame is developed for predicting the behavior of the system under transient conditions. The simulation is carried out for compensation of balanced/unbalanced loading conditions. The simulated results show that generated frequency and voltage remain constant with change in load. The proposed IELC acts as reactive power compensator, harmonic eliminator, load balancer and load controller. Key Words: Self-excited induction generator, improved electronic load controller, Microhydel, Voltage and Frequency Regulation.

I. INTRODUCTION In hilly and isolated areas plenty of hydro potential is available. These hydro potentials can be used to drive hydro turbine to generate the electricity. However, induction machine can be used as a generator provided its reactive power requirement is fulfilled by capacitor banks, is called self-excited induction generator (SEIG). The SEIG has advantages like simplicity, low cost, rugged, maintenance free, absence of DC, brushless etc. as compared to the conventional synchronous generator. The analysis of the SEIG is complicated because its operation depends on the prime-mover speed, capacitor and load. Capacitance requirement with load and speed for the SEIG is reported in the literature [1-3]. Considerable literature is also reported on the transient analysis of the SEIG under balanced/unbalanced resistive, reactive and motor loads. In the literature [4-6], d-q axes modeling are reported for the transient analysis of SEIG under balanced and unbalanced excitation system. Jain et al. [7] have given a generalized model for the transient analysis of SEIG under symmetrical and unsymmetrical conditions. In hydro plants, a turbine is used with governor to control power generation. In micro hydel application, water is available free of cost then a turbine without governor can be used as prime mover and capacitors are connected across the

SEIG according to the rated power and the constant voltage can be maintained by electronic load controller (ELC) [8-14]. Thus electronic load controller (ELC) keeps the load constant on the SEIG under balanced and unity pf load. But in case of unbalanced loads, SEIG currents and voltage are unbalanced and at lagging PF loads SEIG voltage drops down because SEIG and load demands the reactive power, which is not fulfilled by the ELC. Most of the reported electronic load controllers are based on controlled and uncontrolled rectifier with DC chopper, which injects the harmonics in the SEIG. Due to harmonics injection, SEIG is derated and voltage and current of SEIG are non-sinusoidal. In case of unbalanced load, SEIG is further derated due to presence of positive and negative sequence component. The current controlled voltage source inverter with self-supporting DC bus employed as static compensator (STATCOM) can be used for filtering the harmonics and balancing the load. In the reported literature [15-19] STATCOM acts as a voltage regulator to maintain constant voltage for the SEIG. Larsen et al [15] have mentioned the advantage of the STATCOM. Marra and Pomilio [19] have given the VS-PWM bi-directional converter for SEIG, which can regulate the frequency and voltage in case of balanced and linear load. However, there is hardly any attempts on the voltage and frequency regulation under unbalanced and non-linear loads. In this paper, an improved electronic controller (IELC) is presented which is the combination of CC-VSI and DC chopper. The IELC consists of current controlled voltage source inverter, which acts as a voltage regulator, and a DC chopper at DC bus of VSI keeps the rated power on the SEIG. A control technique is developed such that SEIG generates the constant power. In microhydel applications, turbine speed is kept constant and for a constant value excitation capacitor SEIG generates constant voltage, frequency and power, which is known as single point operation. Connecting the capacitor across the SEIG according to the balanced and unity PF power can reduce the rating of the CC-VSI. In this case, load balancing, reactive power compensation and harmonic elimination should be provided for the load by the CC-VSI. A mathematical model is developed for the transient analysis of IELC under the resistive, reactive and nonlinear loads with balanced/unbalanced conditions. The improved electronic load controller acts as a voltage and frequency regulator, harmonic eliminator, and load balancer. II.
