Description

Wind turbines are designed to capture the wind’s kinetic energy and convert it to electrical energy. The Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) wind turbine located at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee is integrated into the micro-grid. In order to understand the performance of the wind system, wind speed, voltage, current, and power outputs will be analyzed over a 24-hour period. Power verses voltage and current and power verses wind speed will be analyzed. The synchronized real time data will be compared to theoretical values to for efficiency. These parameters will be logged to a computer managed by LabView. Data is transmitted to LabView via Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP IP) from the National Instrument CompactRio. The CompactRio receives data through a RS232 serial port from the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based inverter and Wind Data Logger (WDL). The data can be injected into a simulation so the system can be modeled correctly. The data will also be used in future experimental study that will help engineers gain a deeper understanding of the behavior of power generation and the impact various loads has on the source.
