Intelligent control methods of variable speed wind turbine generator

Ahmed Raisan Hussein


Instability of wind energy generates intermittent electrical energy in wind-turbine electric generators. The sporadic energy pushes researchers to find solutions to provide more consistent electricity. There are many ways to integrate the rotational velocity of the rotor in the generator and make it relatively consistent. One of these ways is the gearbox use to increase the velocity of rotation when the wind speed is low and reduce the speed entering the generator when there is high wind velocity. In this work, the intelligent control of the work of the gearbox is made through an Arduino electronic board to be controlled through the gearbox and thus the speed entering the generator is established. Also, a small wind powered generator is designed to simulate a real wind power generator.
