Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to present an overview of the state of technology and discuss some technology tendency in the Power Electronics (PE) used for Wind Power Applications (WPA). Firstly, technological and commercial developments in wind power generation are generally discussed. Next, the wind turbine concept is illustrated and explained using different types of generator. The control structure of wind-turbines (WTs) is explained using DFIG, Asynchronous and Synchronous Generator (ASG and SG). Finally, the last section focuses on a detailed literature review describing DFIG based wind turbine-generator systems in terms of modeling and control strategies.

Keywords:

A wound rotor induction generator (WRIG), Asynchronous and Synchronous Generator (ASG and SG), Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG), Wind Turbines (WTs), Wind Power Applications (WPAs).
