Rotor is wound: it has 3 windings.
Stator has three windings.
Induction machine looks like a transformer with a rotating secondary (rotor).
In DFIG, we will inject a voltage control signal via that converter.

It is possible to prove that the mechanical power out of the machine is the power
associated with the slip-dependent terms R

(1-s)/s and V

(1-s)/s. To do so, use:
r loss s loss r s mech
P P P P P

where P
s
and P
r
are powers entering the machine through the stator & rotor windings,
respectively, and P
loss,s
and P
loss,r
are the stator and rotor winding losses, respectively.
Expressing the right-hand-terms of the power balance relation in terms of the above
circuit parameters leads one to identify the slip-dependent terms as P

Rotor current (I
r
) direction is out of positive side
of voltage source; therefore it supplies power to
circuit. But a normal (positive) resistance R
eq
always consumes power. So these two terms
should be opposite sign. Defining P

below) as motor mode implies R

term should
be added and V

generating mode, supersynchronism, where
m

s
(mode 2). We also observe a
subsynchronous mode (mode 3), where
m
<
s
, which is available to the DGIG as a
result of the machine receiving power from the grid via the rotor circuit.
For each mode, we may use the three relations to track the sign P

Operation must have
|s|<1, so rotor power is
always smaller than
stator power.
In fact, DFIGS always
-0.3<s<0.3.
Therefore, the rating of
the PE converter circuit
need be only about 30%
of the stator winding
rating.

Question: Does this mean that the stator of a 2 MW turbine must be rated for 2.8571?
Answer: No. In subsynchronous mode, the mechanical power from the generator shaft
is lower that that in the supersynchronous mode. If P
mech
increases beyond a certain
level, then machine speed increases into the supersynchronous mode. So above
situation never occurs. We can obtain the maximum power in subsynchronous mode as:

Question on sign of losses
30
Question: Since stator losses (3R
S
I
s
2
) and rotor losses (3R
r
I
r
2
) are always
positive, and since we get sign changes with the numerical values of P
mech
,
P
s
, and (sometimes) P
r
, do the loss terms in the above equation need to
have different signs for motor operation than for generator operation? That
is, do we need to do the following?
r loss s loss r s mech
P P P P P
, ,
+ =
r loss s loss r s mech
P P P P P
, ,
+ =
Motor operation:
r loss s loss r s mech
P P P P P
, ,
+ + + =
Generator operation:
Answer: No. Our original equation applies for both motor & generator operation.
Remember: P
mech
is positive for motor operation; P
s
, and P
r
are positive when
flowing into the device from the grid.
It may help to think about the equation in two different, but equivalent forms.

Per-unitization
31
In general, per-unitization enables inclusion of DFIGs within a system model.
It also facilitates identification of inappropriate data. Finally, a per-unitized
voltage provides the ability to know how far it is from its nominal value
(usually also the normal value) without knowing that nominal value.

The procedure is to choose three base quantities and compute other
necessary base quantities. We will choose our base quantities as
rated rms line-to-neutral stator voltage, V
base

(rms volts);
rated rms stator line current, I

Now we can replace voltages, currents, and flux linkages with the product of their

The 2 MW DFIG given by the data on slide 38 is delivering, from the stator, rated

Wind turbine control levels
46
Level I: Regulates power flow
between grid and generator.
Level II: Controls the amount
of energy extracted from the
wind by wind turbine rotor.
Level III: Responds to wind-
farm or grid-central control
commands for MW dispatch,
voltage, frequency, or inertial
control.
Rotor-side converter (RSC) is
controlled so that it provides
independent control of T

and Q
s
. Lets study the
steady-state actions of this
particular control function.

used for DFIGs
Assume DC bus voltage is
controlled by grid-side
converter (GSC) to a pre-
determined value for
proper operation of both
GSC and RSC.
We achieve
control objectives
by controlling
rotor-side
voltage.
We control rotor
voltage to achieve a
specified torque and
stator reactive power.
Level 1 control
48
Our objective here is, for a fixed stator voltage (fixed by the grid), and a
desired torque T
em,ref
and a desired stator reactive power Q
s,ref
, we want to
determine the rotor voltage to make it so. We are also interested in the
stator flux, stator current, rotor current, and rotor flux, and stator real power,
as shown in the diagram below.

49
We draw the phasor diagram with stator flux as the reference (0 degrees). Here,
the stator flux, denoted by
s
s
), is specified as the reference. We
have identified particular angles in this phasor diagram. It is operating as a
motor (current is almost in phase with voltage), and the stator is absorbing
reactive power (I

Magnitudes are attractive because then we can plot them.
The above relations are given as a function of

to plot them as a function of rotor speed,
m

r

/(1-s). You can think of the rotor speed as

that for low positive slips, rotor speed is just below synchronous speed, and
for low negative slips, rotor speed is just above synchronous speed.

Question: Do we need to specify motor or generator operation in the above equation?
Answer: Not for the relation P
airgap
= P
s
-P
loss,s
(see slide 30). For motor op, P
s
>0 and
losses subtract so that P
airgap
is smaller than P
s
, consistent with the fact that power
flows from stator to rotor. For gen op, P
s
<0 and losses add so that P
airgap
is larger than
P
s
, consistent with the fact that power flows from rotor to stator.
However, the relation on the right assumes that I
s
is a magnitude (positive), and so it
is correct for motor op. For gen op, we must use a negative magnitude to get the sign
of V

Consider a 1.5 MW, 690 v, 50 Hz 1750 rpm DFIG wind energy system. The
parameters of the generator are given on the next slide. The generator operates
with a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) system so that its mechanical
torque T
em
is proportional to the square of the rotor speed. The stator power factor
is unity. For each of the following speeds: 1750, 1650, 1500, 1350, and 1200 rpm,
compute:

Homework #4
72
There is another solution which has very
large current and is clearly not realistic.
Be careful here because this
solution assumed the direction
of current I
r
opposite to what we
have assumed.
Observe that slip=0. This implies that a DC current flows through the rotor circuit
from the converter and the rotor leakage reactance and equivalent reactance
are zero. The DFIG is operating like a synchronous machine where the rotor flux
is produced by a DC current through a DC exciter.
SCIG Torque-slip characteristic
73
You may recall, from EE 303 or your undergraduate course on electric machines that
the torque-slip characteristic of the squirrel-cage induction generator (SCIG) appears
as below. One observes that the SCIG operates as a generator only when it is in
supersynchronous mode and a motor only when it is in subsynchronous mode.

Lets see how we obtain this curve for SCIG, and lets also compare what
we do to what we need to do to obtain the analogous curves for the DFIG.

FERC 661-A  specifies that large wind farms must maintain a power factor within the
range of 0.95 leading to 0.95 lagging, measured at the POI as defined in the Large
Generator Interconnect Agreement (LGIA) if the Transmission Provider shows, in the
system impact study that they are needed to ensure the safety or reliability of the
transmission system..

Order No. 661, 70 FR 34993 (June 16, 2005), FERC Stats. & Regs. 31,186 (2005) (Final Rule); see also Order Granting
Extension of Effective Date and Extending Compliance Date, 70 FR 47093 (Aug. 12, 2005), 112 FERC 61,173 (2005).
E. Camm and C. Edwards, Reactive Compensation Systems for Large Wind Farms, IEEE Transmission and Distribution
Conference and Exposition, 2008.
The Electrical System Operator (IESO) of Ontario essentially requires reactive power
capabilities for large wind farms that are equivalent to that for synchronous generators,
taking into consideration an equivalent impedance between the generator terminals
and the POI . The requirements include: Supplying full active power continuously
while operating at a generator terminal voltage ranging from 0.95 pu to 1.05 pu of the
generators rated terminal voltage.
The Alberta Electric System Operators requirements  include: The wind farms
continuous reactive capability shall meet or exceed 0.9 power factor (pf) lagging to 0.95
pf leading at the collector bus based on the wind farm aggregated MW output.

Along with the evolution of wind turbine technology, technical standards of wind
generation interconnections become more restrictive. For example, unity power factor
has been required for wind generation interconnections in many utilities or control
areas in earlier years. Recently, the more restrict requirement with 0.95 lead and lag
power factor has been under discussion since the DFIG and full converter wind turbine
technology has become mainstream of wind generation interconnection requests.

The difference in sign on the square root term indicates higher rotor current is required
for overexcited operation than for underexcited operation. No big surprise there!
And so the rotor winding should be rated for the overexcited operation, at
rated stator active power output. This would be. (next slide)
