Máster Universitario en Conversión de Energía Eléctrica y Sistemas de Potencia
The project deals with the design of a small wind turbine generation system (< 2.5 kW) for single phase grid connection. The aim of this MTh is to develop the power electronics and control system needed for the proper operation of the wind turbine. This system must be e cient and totally autonomous since in its nal stage it is intended to be commercialized by the company AZ Renovables, who nancially supports this piece of research. In a previous project the selection of the power electronic topology and the basic control strategy for the power converter has been established. A demonstrator prototype was built to prove the main features of the system. This MTh will include new improvements in the control strategy (voltage and current control loops) needed to improve the system performance, allowing testing di erent MPPT algorithms. Since this electronic system is a part of a bigger electromechanical system, a full redesign of the PCB will be required in order to integrate it in the whole product. It will be also included in this MTh a wireless communication system to monitor the system main variables in real time. An important part of the MTh will be devoted to both study and meet the existing regulations in case of commercialization.
