Drift, utveckling och dokumentation vid Chalmers provstation för vindenergiforskning
The objective of the project is to carry out research, maintain and run the Wind Turbine at the Hönö test station. Another objective of the project is to make documentation and measurements available on the web. 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. In this study the generator electrical system has been rebuilt for series compensation. An investigation of series compensation of the PM generator has been made in an earlier study. (”Drift av Hönö provstation – HÖNÖ”, Chalmers, December 2006) That earlier study showed that the use of capacitors in series with the generator windings in comparison to parallel capacitors could increase the power output from the generator by 60%. Measurements made on the rebuilt electrical system confirm this. Several study visits and an Open House are arranged annually. The test station is financed by Göteborg Energi. The report is made within the project ”Drift, utveckling och dokumentation vid Chalmers provstation för vindenergiforskning”.
