Regulation of the Excitation Reactive Power of the Asynchronous Wind Turbine at Variable Speed


This work focuses, initially, on modeling and simulating an isolated wind system in MATLAB/SIMULINK. And in the second part, it presents the simulation results of the wind system to start unloading and in resistive load, and the third part will discuss the strategy for adjusting the output voltage of the wind system to connect it to a rural operating load. The results show that in a dynamic environment where the wind speed and the load, changes abruptly, the voltage of the output is controlled at the desired value.
