Scientific advances and innovation

The grid connection of the generation is taken into account for the control synthesis and not only for a posteriory validations of the closed-loop. The proposed control model directly captures the characteristics of the AC grid to which the generator has to be connected. This allows better performances and robustness but also the possibility to adapt the controls to the grid evolutions. To ensure this, a new control approach will be proposed. Its philosophy, form and implementation are different from the ones of the classic vector control.

Expected technical and economic impact

COMEOL is a multi-field project : automatic control – for the synthesis of the control laws – and power systems&electronics for the grid and generator/converters part.

The companies involved in this project will better manage the grid connection of the wind generation.

Key project milestones

  • June 2017 - First proposition of control methodology
  • December 2017 - First implementation/hardware in the loop validation
