Abstract

The scope of this Doctorate research project consists of the study of a DC microgrid control and energetic management with a wind system based on the switched reluctance generator (SRG). SRG is pointed out in the literature as a viable option to wind systems due to its robustness and high efficiency in a wide speed range. Since the SRG is controlled such that the output current is DC, these machines are natural candidates to operate in DC microgrids. DC microgrids present advantages when compared to the conventional AC grids, especially because of its capacity to integrate renewable energy resources, such as wind and solar, in a distributed generation model. However, controlling and management of DC microgrids with multiple elements became a challenge to be explored. This project proposes the study of the SRG connected to a DC microgrid incorporating energy storage system, variable loads, power electronic converters and the AC main grid connection. Grid management and control techniques will be evaluated to ensure the microgrid reliable operation with SRG as the main distributed source in grid connected or islanded mode. The chosen institution to the FAPESP Research Internships Abroad (BEPE) is the University of Aalborg, Denmark. The Aalborg Microgrid Research Programme is recognized as a world reference in the field. (AU)
