This paper presents a complete approach for switched reluctance generator (SRG) in variable wind energy conversion systems. Two forms of direct power control (DPC) and a commutative system that allows SRG performance at a wide range of speed variations are proposed. Thus, more mechanical energy can be captured in wind generation. In the proposed structure, the SRG operates in a self-excited mode using a common dc bus system of a voltage source inverter connected to an electrical grid. DPCs are proposed by hysteresis of the SRG phase current for low-speed operation (DPC-LS) and by a single pulse of current for high-speed operation (DPC-HS). The low-pass filter employed to obtain the average power generated may slow down the response of the control system of the DPC applied to SRG. To improve the system performance, sliding mode controllers in DPCs were used. For operation throughout a wide speed range, the DPC-LS and DPC-HS controls should be joined. Therefore, a commutative system with smooth transition between DPC modes is proposed. Finally, simulations and experimental tests were conducted to verify the behavior of the proposed arrangement. The results confirmed correct operation of the proposed system. (AU)
