Smith, C.J. and Crabtree, C.J. and Matthews, P.C. (2015) 'Experimental set-up for applying wind turbine operating profiles to the nacelle power converter.', 11th EAWE PhD Seminar Stuttgart, Germany, 23-25 September 2015.
Studies have shown that the reliability of fully rated converters (FRC) in permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) wind turbines is critical. This paper outlines an experimental rig that applies PMSG wind turbine specific operating profiles to a machine side converter (MSC) power module. A number of test regimes have been designed to verify thermal models of the power module, validate the use of cycle life vs. Tj profile manufacturing data, and determine the wind turbine operational profiles that cause the most damage to the MSC.
