Control And Disturbances Compensation For Doubly Fed Induction Generators Using The Derivative-Free Nonlinear Kalman Filter

Control and Disturbances Compensation for Doubly Fed Induction Generators Using the Derivative-Free Nonlinear Kalman Filter


The paper studies differential flatness properties and an input-output linearization procedure for doubly fed induction generators (DFIGs). By defining flat outputs which are associated with the rotor’s turn angle and the magnetic flux of the stator, an equivalent DFIG description in the Brunovksy (canonical) form is obtained. For the linearized canonical model of the generator, a feedback controller is designed. Moreover, a comparison of the differential flatness theory-based control method against Lie algebra-based control is provided. At the second stage, a novel Kalman Filtering method (Derivative-free nonlinear Kalman Filtering) is introduced. The proposed Kalman Filter is redesigned as disturbance observer for estimating additive input disturbances to the DFIG model. These estimated disturbance terms are finally used by a feedback controller that enables the generator’s state variables to track desirable setpoints. The efficiency of the proposed state estimation-based control scheme is tested through simulation experiments.
