2 Wind Power Systems 1. Windmills go back a long time. A key money maker for milling grain. 2. First use for electrical generation in 1891 by Poul la Cour used generate hydrogen. 3. Used shortly afterward in the rural US. 4. 1941 Grand Paw’s Knob Vermont 1250 kW,175ft two blade system. Failed in 1945 5. 1970’s to mid 1980’s in California and then to Europe 2 ECEN2060

8 Characteristics of Some Wind Turbines 1. Horizontal Axis Wind turbine Up wind and Down wind.  A. Down wind has advantage of self aligning (yaw)  B. Disadvantages Shadowing by tower that increases flexing of the blades which, decrease power, increases fatigue and noise.  C. Up wind Advantage More power, Smoother  D. Disadvantages more complicated control 2. Vertical Axis, Darrieus Advantage Heavy equipment on the ground. Lighter tower. Disadvantage Blades close to the ground where the wind is slower. Low starting torques. Hard to feather in high winds. 8 ECEN2060

12 Wind Turbines Most wind turbines are up wind horizontal. Many blades high torque and works well at low wind speeds. Two blades turn faster than 3 blades, less turbulence. 3 blades smoother and installed the most. 3 blade weights more. 12 ECEN2060

20 Temperature Correction for Air Density 20 ECEN2060 The molecular weight of air is approximately 28.97 and the density at 15 o C is 1.225 kg/m 3

24 Effects of Tower Height 24 ECEN2060 Z is the roughness length

25 Surface Friction 25 ECEN2060

26 Roughness 26 ECEN2060

27 Effects of Height with Different Roughness 27 ECEN2060

28 Effects of Variation of Wind Speed with Height on Stress 28 ECEN2060 This leads to vibrations, noise, blade flexing and fatigue. Factors to 1.45 more power at top to bottom in example.

29 Maximum Rotor Efficiency 29 ECEN2060 Betz limit 1/3 initial velocity

30 Blade Efficiency 30 ECEN2060 Assume uniform velocity over the blade To find the maximum power efficiency

31 Real Turbines 31 ECEN2060 1 Best 80% of Betz limit more often 40% to 50% 2. Depends on ratio of rotor speed to wind speed. Often defined in terms of Tip speed.

35 Matching Generator Size to Rotor Diameter with Wind Speed 1 35 ECEN2060

36 Blade Speed Limits 1. Want to operate in the TSR of 4-6 2. Example 40m blades 600kW,14m/s, This leads to 26 revolutions per minute and tip speed of 56m/s 3. Required gear ratio to get to 1800rpm of 67.4 4. Wind Power of 2,112 kW to get 600kW or an efficiency of 28% 36 ECEN2060

40 Wind Speed Measurements 40 ECEN2060

41 Types of Generators 41 ECEN2060

42 Generators for Wind Turbines 1. A key issue is the variable of the wind speed and a need for nearly constant speed to achieve 50 or 60hz. 2. Basic equations F= q(E + vxB) = qE + I xB and V induced = - = - ~ I 3. Note the current I is proportional to the rate of change of the magnetic field B and the force is proportional to the product B ∂B/∂t 3. Synchronous Generators A. Need for constant speed to keep output at 60hz. 4. Induction Generators 42 ECEN2060

43 Types of Systems 43 ECEN2060

44 Synchronous Generator 44 ECEN2060

45 A Direct Drive Permeate Magnetic Machine 1 45 ECEN2060

46 Induction Generator 1.Fixed windings on the rotor and does not require brushes or electrical contact with the rotor. 2. The rotor runs a little slower than the rotating field when operating as a motor and faster when it is working as a generator. 3. The induced current in the rotor conductors generate the magnetic fields that lead to the torques. 46 ECEN2060

47 Forces with a Rotating Magnetic Field 47 ECEN2060

48 Squirrel Cage Rotor 48 ECEN2060 Note 3 phase driving current gives a rotating field when the currents are 120 degrees out of phase Synchronous speed N s = 120 f/p where f is the frequency and p Is the number of poles.

51 Induction Motor Torque –Slip Curve 51 ECEN2060

52 Example of Induction Motor. 52 ECEN2060

53 Inductance Machine as Generator 53 ECEN2060 1.The wind starts the machine as a motor until it gets above synchronous speed 2.Can be connected to the grid or self excited with a capacitor and remnant magnetic field. Set it to resonate with the Stator Inductance

54 Need for Speed Control 1. Want to operate with a tip speed ratio of 4-6 for maximum power and blade efficiency C p 2. If direct connection to the grid need a fixed blade speed for phase and frequency control to match frequency on the grid if you have a fixed turbine to generator connection. 3. Need to shed power in high winds. 4. Use a gear box. 5. Use pitch control of the blades 6. Control of slip which in turn controls power. 7. Doubly wound rotor. 54 ECEN2060

55 Inductance Generator Speed Control 55 ECEN2060

56 Examples of Speed Adjustments. 56 ECEN2060

57 Control of the Number of Poles in the Stator 1. This can be done by changing the connections on the windings. For example two poles adjacent to each other can be connected to look like one. This is 1/2 the frequency for a fixed speed. 2. Change gear ratio. 3. Varying the resistance seen by the rotor winding varies the slip. 4. Use an indirect connection to the grid by way of an inverter AC to DC to AC(60hz.) This allows for variable frequency into the inverter and variable turbine speed. 57 ECEN2060
