Comparison of photovoltaic and wind generators as dynamic input sources to power processing interfaces Conference Paper uri icon


  • The paper reveals that while the equivalent circuit, representing the load side reflected low- frequency dynamics of a wind turbine generator, is similar to the electrical equivalent circuit of a photovoltaic generator, their dynamic resistances possess different behavior. While the incremental conductance of a photovoltaic generator does not change sign with terminal voltage variations, zero-crossing dynamic conductance characterizes wind turbine generator. The findings points out the complications arising during interfacing a wind turbine generator by different power processing interfaces.
