Abstract

This paper explores the steady-state analysis of a Brushless Doubly Fed Reluctance Generator (BDFRG) as an alternative to a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) for variable-speed wind power applications. The steady-state equations describing the model of the DFIG and the BDFRG are presented. Furthermore, the effect of the rotor/secondary voltage on the both machines control in the motor and generator mode of operation is studied. The results of steady-state analysis based on equivalent circuits of the two machines having the same rated power and the number of rotor poles show a great deal of similarity in the behavior. But, when the generators are running sub-synchronously in the case of wind speed drop, the BDFRG produces higher active power than the DFIG. However, the copper losses of the DFIG are less.
