Teknisk slutrapport i projektet Drift av Hönö provstation - HÖNÖ
The objective of the project is to carry out research, maintain and run the Wind Turbine at the Hönö test station. The station is used in research projects as well as a demonstration and a lab facility. The turbine is equipped with a permanent magnet direct driven generator and an electrical system with a DC link suited for variable speed operation. Research is focused mainly on the generator and its electrical system. An investigation of series compensation of the PM generator has been made. Theoretical studies have shown that the use of capacitors in series with the generator windings in comparison to the present parallel capacitors could increase the power output from the generator. Both theoretical calculations and practical tests show that an increase of the power by 60 % is possible. Several study visits and an Open House are arranged annually. The test station is financed by the Swedish Energy Board and Göteborg Energi. The report is made within the project 'Drift av Hönö provstation - HÖNÖ'. The report describes research and other activities at the test station from the project start 1 July, 2002 until the project end in 30 July, 2005.
