This study deals with analysis of grid integrated Switched Reluctance Generator (SRG) based wind farm control using Modified Hybrid Multicell Converter (MHMC). A Finite Element Analysis (FEA) model is developed for the existing machine geometry using MagNet 7.1.1 and solved to obtain the parameters like flux linkage, inductance and torque. The data obtained from FEA Model is utilized to develop model of SRG in the MATLAB/SIMULINK environment. Asymmetric Half Bridge Converter (AHBC) with dedicative buses for source and load is used for excitation. Developed wind turbine with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm to extract maximum power from the wind turbine. Output of the SRG is integrated with grid through Modified Hybrid Multicell Converter. The MHMC uses a flying capacitor module on each cell to generate a positive variable dc-link voltage. The variable dc link is inverted at fundamental switching frequency by an H-bridge to generate the cell output voltage. Phase-Disposition level-shifted Pulse Width Modulation (PD-PWM) Technique is used to obtain the high performance waveforms. In this study wind farm having four SRG'S controlled through MHMC is proposed. © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2015.
