Experimental and Finite Element Studies of a 250 kW Brushless Doubly Fed Induction Generator

Experimental and Finite Element Studies of a 250 kW Brushless Doubly Fed Induction Generator

Brushless doubly fed induction generator (BDFIG) can replace doubly fed slip-ring induction generators for offshore wind power generation. This study uses experimentally verified finite element (FE) analysis, various performance measures of the BDFIG when magnetic wedges are used for closing stator open slots to show that the use of magnetic wedges increases the performance of the generator.

Power Hardware in-the-Loop Validation of DC-DC Power Converter

Power Hardware in-the-Loop Validation of DC-DC Power Converter

The paper describes the development of a power converter small-scale mock-up and a real-time model of an offshore wind farm. Power Hardware In-the-Loop (PHIL) validation is proposed for a demonstration of grid architecture and control principles. Results obtained with a test bench underline the importance of PHIL testing in the power converter development for DC grid applications.

Software Simulation Tool for Design of the Energy Management System in Elevators

Software Simulation Tool for Design of the Energy Management System in Elevators

This work shows the development of a software tool that provides realistic operation power profiles in elevators for residential and public buildings applications to accelerate Energy Management System prototyping. The simulator is validated and verified through computer simulations, through a HIL (Hardware-in-the- Loop) platform and is finally validated using a full-scale laboratory prototype.
