Analysis of a Self-excited Induction Generator with Fuzzy PI Controller for Supporting Domestic Loads in a Microgrid
Keywords:Electronic load connector, fuzzy PI controller, induction generator, Variable Excitation, Wind Power
This study provides a technical analysis of integrating a microgrid structure for power generation with a wind energy conversion system. This study's primary objective is to identify solutions to issues that arise when isolated induction generator is utilized in a microgrid. A closed loop electronic load connector is used to control the loads of the induction generator-based system. The load controller is adjusted using an adaptive fuzzy based proportional-integral controller for better control. Additionally, by employing a straightforward variable capacitor design to inject reactive power during voltage dips, it provides a way to sustain the voltage profile. The suggested approach and its control are investigated in MATLAB/Simulink and verified with the aid of a lab experimental setup. The outcomes clearly demonstrate the practicality of the suggested plan to be implemented in grid-isolated places.
