Protection of DFIG wind turbine using fuzzy logic control
Abstract-In the last 15 years, Double Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) had been widely used as a wind turbine generator, due its various advantages especially low generation cost so it becomes the most important and promising sources of renewable energy. This work focuses on studying of using DFIG as a wind turbine connected to a grid subjected to various types of fault. Crowbar is a kind of protection used for wind turbine generator protection. ANFIS controller is used for protection of DFIG during faults.In addition,The fault current under symmetric and asymmetric fault is presented as well as a way to control the increase in rotor current which leads to voltage increase in DC link between wind generator and the grid. ANFIS is used for solving such problem as it is one of the most commonly AI used techniques.
