SIMULATION OF WIND TURBINES

Vascat S.A. has recently provided to the prestigious “Energy Research Institute of Catalonia” (IREC) a test bed for testing wind turbines control systems. The testing system incorporates a permanent magnet synchronous servomotor from VASCAT MDD series, and a custom made polyphase synchronous generator (9 phases), in addition to other auxiliary elements (encoders, couplings, etc.). This platform will be used for testing electronic drive systems of wind turbines, thereby improving its design without the need of performing expensive tests outside the laboratory. By choosing VASCAT solution, the client was able to have a customized solution with very interesting features and just using one supplier.
