Abstract The purpose of the thesis is the development of a wind turbine control system capable to handle short-term grid faults. The work has been performed in the department of Electrical Engineering of Danmarks Tekniske Universitet. The present thesis aims to contribute to a growing body of literature concerning with wind turbine control system design. First important know-how on wind technology is analyzed, considering the different topologies of system in the wind market, and then the work conducts to the development strategy that better fits to the aim of project. The thesis is developed in two steps: 1. Simulation of the designed control system, by the use of Matlab/Simulink software. 2. Laboratory implementation, with HiL, and software design by using the digital signal processor, ADSP-21020. Simulation and experimental results will be depicted and commented. Field Oriented Control for operation in normal condition and during grid faults will be considered as control method. In software development for laboratory implementation, Assembler language is used for DSP programming. Thesis organization The thesis is organized in 9 chapters. Notation, list of tables, list of figures and abbreviations are shown after the table of Contents. Literature references are mentioned in square brackets by number. Detailed information about literature is presented in Bibliography. Appendices are assigned with letters and are arranged in alphabetical order. Equations are numbered in format (x.y) and figures are numbered in format Figure x-y, where x is the chapter number and y is the number of the item. The enclosed CD/ROM contains the project report in Word and PDF formats, source code of the designed software, Simulink models and documentation used throughout the project.
