This paper emphasizes the development of a simplified active power control scheme for enhanced operation of grid integrated permanent magnet synchronous generator based wind-driven generators (WGs). An active power reference generation scheme is proposed for the machine side converter (MSC) to inject active power into the grid even under grid disturbances, without violating system components rating. In this scheme, the controller employed for MSC adjusts the active power captured proportionate to the drop in the grid voltage upon considering wind speed and rotor speed. Furthermore, unlike dual vector control scheme, the grid side converter controller is implemented in a positive synchronous frame with the proposed current oscillation cancellation scheme to suppress the oscillations in dc-link voltage, active and reactive power of the grid and to obtain symmetrical sinusoidal grid current. Extensive analytical simulation has been carried out in PSCAD/ EMTDC to validate the superiority of proposed control scheme over the conventional schemes when WG is subjected to various grid disturbances. The reduced percentage of oscillation in the system parameters such as dc-link voltage and grid active power confirms the efficacy of the proposed method when compared with the conventional control techniques. © 2010-2012 IEEE.
