Enhancement of small signal stability of a DFIG-based wind power system using fuzzy logic control
This paper proposes fuzzy logic controllers for enhancing the small signal stability of DFIG-based wind integrated power system. The test system used is single machine infinite bus system integrated with conventional proportional-integral controllers. The fuzzy logic controllers provide optimum proportional and integral gains under various operating conditions namely wind speed and grid strength. The effects of strong and weak grid strengths have been taken into account with short circuit level of 40 MVA and 16 MVA, respectively. The obtained result justifies that the damping ratio and there by the small signal stability of such a system have been enhanced considerably by the action of fuzzy logic controllers. The generalization can be enlarged to multi-machine systems in various dynamic conditions.
