Abstract

For a DC wind turbine, a single phase series-resonant converter for unidirectional power is studied. This paper aims to identify and compare impact on electrical losses and component ratings from the choice of three candidate control strategies. The evaluation is purely based on circuit simulations and offline post-processing of losses. The initial findings indicate that lower losses are obtained in discontinuous current mode (DCM) conditions, with drawbacks on transformer design.
