Optimal Regulators Conception for Wind Turbine PMSG Generator Using Hooke Jeeves Method
This paper explores the optimization of wind turbine control system parameters. The wind turbine based on 5 MW PMSG Permanent magnet synchronous generator with two back-to-back converters which are connected to AC offshore network. For good functioning of the control system based on PI regulators, it is necessary to find a perfect way for calculating the gains of these regulators. In this paper, Hooke Jeeves method is presented as one of optimization solutions that can compute parameters of PI regulators. For this purpose, a model of offshore wind turbine is installed in PSCAD/EMTD in order to perform simulation study in which optimal PI regulators design can be found.
