Welcome to Generators and their control (2021)

Description: Fractional KVA ratings PWM Converter variable wind(hydro) generators de sign and control: recent progress

Motivation and 
brief Contents description: Fractional KVA(MVA) ratings PWM converter  variable speed generators represent 50 % of all installed wind power by DFIG systems which underwent staggering progress in optimal design and advanced control in strong and weak  Grid and standalone applications, with asymmetric voltage sags etc. But in an effort to eliminate the slip-rings and brush system to transmit power from DFIG rotor to fractional KVA(MVA) ratings(30-40%)PWM  Converter, quite a few BRUSHLESS solutions have been developed spectacularly in the last decade: like BDFIG,BDFRG, Dual stator winding cage CRIG, open winding CRIG, dual rotor dual stator winding flux modulation PM brushless generators which also enjoy the Fractional KVA ratings PWM converter in the control stator winding while the power stator winding is connected to the grid or , in a standalone mode, to a diode rectifier. 

The main scope of these solutions is initial and maintenance cost reduction with still high efficiency for limited(+-30%) speed variation range in wind(hydro) energy conversion but also in standalone applications with ac or dc controlled output(say as  marine vessel, or aircraft starter-generators with gas turbine or Diesel engine prime movers etc applications. 

All the above issues are treated in detail based on IEEE representative seminal and recent lit. and our own research results to endow the participants with solid knowledge for designing and controlling BRUSHLESS  variable speed generators with fractional KVA(MVA) ratings PWM converters of the  Future

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
