Abstract

To optimize the power in a wind turbine the speed of the turbine should be able to vary with the wind speed. A simple control is proposed that will allow an induction motor to run a turbine at its maximum power coefficient. The control uses a standard V/Hz converter and controls the frequency to achieve the desired power at a given turbine speed.
