Abstract

The alternator depends entirely on the conversion of kinetic energy into electrical energy by the presence of a magnetic factor. Wind energy is defined as the process of converting wind energy into another form of energy that is easy to use. In this paper, a permanent-magnet-alternator (PMA) with full-converter (FC) was used in the wind turbine (WT) generator instead of the excitation coil of the magnetic field. This method was used to save lost energy in the induction coil. A complete wind turbine model with a (FC) was connected to a generator with a fixed magnetic field and an electric grid was fed. This simulation system was completed by PSIM simulation program. In this work, the IP control system was used to operate the simulation system. In this study, a greater stable amount of real and reactive power was obtained from the wind turbine.
