General Description

The Wind Power Application with Permanent Magnets Synchronous Generator, with SCADA, "AEL-WPTC", has been designed to study the conversion of wind energy into electricity by means of a permanent magnet synchronous generator. This application allows the user to understand the structure and working of the different control, regulation and storage devices used in real wind systems.

The "AEL-WPTC" application includes a three-phase permanent magnet synchronous generator together with a servomotor and its control module, with the goal of studying electrical energy generation through the simulation of a real wind turbine. For that purpose, the application also includes an inverter and a regulator, as control and regulating devices, a battery, as storage device, and a series of AC and DC loads, as consumption elements of the generated power.

In order to carry out advanced tests with the permanent magnet generator, it is recommended to acquire the Control and Data Acquisition System Software for Electrical Machines, "EM-SCADA", which allows monitoring the operation mechanical parameters (torque, rotational speed) and the electrical parameters (voltage, current, powers, power factor...) to obtain the characteristic curves and operation points of the electrical machine under study.

Lastly, it is offered the opportunity to acquire a real small-size permanent magnets wind turbine to gain more experience in the study of the wind turbines and its working.
