2 kW Doubly-Fed Induction Generator Research System



The 2 kW Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG)Research System uses several components from the 2 kW EMS product line. It is designed for customers that are interested in further experimentation with the doubly-fed induction generators used in wind turbines. It includes the Four-Quadrant Dynamometer, Model 8540, which can be interfaced easily with a computer in order to emulate the wind blowing on a wind turbine rotor. The generator included in the training system is a variation of the existing Wound-Rotor Induction Generator whose rotor voltage is three times higher than its stator voltage. The system also includes two IGBT Chopper/Inverter modules, Model 8857-1, that can convert power in both directions in conjunctions to a Line Inductors, Model 8374-A. Finally, a Three-Phase Power Supply, Model 8525-2, is used for connection to a standard three-phase network.

The system DOES NOT include the DFIG controller, which must be provided by the user. The 2 kW DFIG Training System is exclusively a hardware solution.

The 2 kW DFIG Training System has already been integrated with success into OPAL-RT’s OP5600/8660 Real-Time HIL Controller and Data Acquisition System. Contact OPAL-RT at for more information about their control solution.
