Abstract

The main aim of the present project is to obtain a better understanding of the dynamic control of a wind turbine. To accomplish this, an adaptive dynamic controller was developed and connected to a wind DFIG Simulink model. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the controller in question, a three phase fault in the power grid was simulated. Results showed how the implementation of the adaptive dynamic programming controller helped to improve the speed of response of the system. It also helped to reduce the magnitude of the oscillations taking place after the disturbance is removed. The non-linear systems are difficult to model and to control. New modern control techniques allow controlling these systems without having the system model, reducing the complexity. Among these techniques, it is the adaptive dynamic control that estimates the parameters of the dynamic system on-line and adapts their control to the new conditions without spreading the error throughout a feedback network.
