Implementation of Wind Powered Switched Reluctance Generator System

R Jayapragash, C Chellamuthu


This paper reports implementation of Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) for Switched Reluctance Generator (SRG) based wind power generation system supplying stand alone load.  MATLAB/Simulink model of the SRG machine is developed using the characteristics acquired by solving the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) model of the machine used for implementation.  Wind turbine is incorporated with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) control technique and to mitigate the problem of wind power fluctuation a BESS for a wind powered SRG with Isolated Bi-directional DC-DC Converter (IBDC) is proposed. The response of BESS is evaluated using MATLAB/Simulink computing tool and the results are reported. For experimental purpose, the wind turbine is emulated by a 12V DC motor.  The BESS for wind powered SRG is analyzed and implemented using microcontroller to validate the simulation results.
