The AEL-WPP is used to investigate the design and operation of modern wind power stations. The AEL-WPP consists of a prime motor that moves a double-feed induction generator (as a generator for the wind power plant).
This power station includes a SCADA Control Systems which allows the following:
In one hand the SCADA allows the user to configure the desired wind curve for the experiment. Once the wind curve is configured and the user starts the experiment, the Software controls automatically the AEL-SERIN/CA-1K motor to generate the same wind curve configured by the user.
In the other hand the SCADA allows to visualize the most important signals of the systems (rotor current, stator current, line voltage, dc bus voltage of the back to back inverter…) and allows to visualize the most important measurements of the system (value of the rotor active power and reactive power, stator active power and reactive power, total active and reactive power, speed of the generator shaft…).
The software also allows the user to save the experiment data, to analyze the results after the test, through a data visualizer included with the software. The data format of the saved files are compatible with Microsoft excel.
This application can be combined with other applications of generation, transmission/distribution and load systems areas.
