1 Basics of Wind Power The ability of a wind turbine to extract power from wind is a function of three main factors: Wind power availability. Power curve of the machine. Ability of the machine to respond to wind perturbations. 14) The power from the wind is a cubic function of wind speed. The curve for power coefficient Cp and λ is required to infer the value of Cp for λ based on wind speed at that time. Where tip speed ratio, λ = rωUA , ρ = Air density, Kg m−3 , Cp = power coefficient, A = wind turbine rotor swept area, m2 , U = wind speed in m/s.

Solidity (σ ) is defined as the ratio of the sum of the width of all the blades to the circumference of the rotor. 16) where N = number of blades and d = width of the blades. The power from a wind turbine doubles as the area swept by the blades doubles. But doubling of the wind speed increases the power output eight times. 54 gives a family of power curves for a wind turbine. 54 v3 v4 200 400 600 800 1000 1200 1400 Generator Shaft Speed (rpm) Turbine power vs shaft speed curves. 55 Vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) Typical diagram of HAWTs and VAWTs.

The grid-interfaced PV inverters, voltage-controlled VSI (VCVSI), or current-controlled VSI (CCVSI) have the potential of bi-directional power flow. They cannot only feed the local load but also can export the excess active and reactive power to the utility grid. An appropriate controller is required in order to avoid any error in power export due to errors in synchronization, which can overload the inverter. There are advantages and limitations associated with each control mechanism. 42 VBat Lf Cf Schematic diagram of a parallel processing DGS.
