A NEW ROBUST CONTROL USING ADAPTIVE FUZZY SLIDING MODE CONTROL FOR A DFIG SUPPLIED BY A 19-LEVEL INVERTER WITH LESS NUMBER OF SWITCHES

This article presents the powers control of a variable speed wind turbine based on a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) because of their advantages in terms of economy and control. The considered system consists of a DFIG whose stator is connected directly to the electrical network and its rotor is supplied by a 19-level inverter with less number of switches for minimize the harmonics absorbed by the DFIG, reducing switching frequency, high power electronic applications because of their ability to generate a very good quality of waveforms, and their low voltage stress across the power devices. In order to control independently active and reactive powers provided by the stator side of the DFIG to the grid and ensure high performance and a better execution, three types of robust controllers have been studied and compared in terms of power reference tracking, response to sudden speed variations, sensitivity to perturbations and robustness against machine parameters variations.

Introduction. Wind energy has the most contribution for power generation among different renewable energy resources; this is so because of its potential advantageous such as free availability of wind, ability to exploit in high power, other land around uses of wind farms and as the important one it is relatively inexpensive to build wind farm [1]. The wind energy community has dedicated a huge effort to develop improved condition monitoring strategies. Fault detection and isolation schemes and fault tolerant control strategies applicable to wind turbines (WT) [2].

Wind power has established itself as a main source for the generation of electricity in the past decade by delivering at least 3.4% of the world's electricity in 2014, a figure expected to increase to 6-8 % by 2020 and to 8-17 % by 2030 [3, 4].

In the development of WT technologies doubly fed induction generators (DFIG) are the most popular due to their numerous advantages including independent control of both active and reactive powers, variable speed operation, four-quadrant active and reactive power capabilities, high energy efficiency, and low size converters [5-8]. These advantages are achieved through controlling the rotor voltage or current by a converter while the stator is directly connected to the grid [9].

Research on the control and operation for DFIG under distorted grid voltage conditions has been studied in [10]. Studied in this paper is shown in Fig. 1. In this diagram, mechanical energy is produced by a WT and provided to a DFIG through a gear box. The back-to-back control system and voltage source converters comprise rotor-side and grid-side converters. The grid side converter (GSC) is used to

control the DC-link voltage and reactive power exchanged with the grid and is connected to the grid via three chokes to improve the current harmonic distortion. The rotor side converter (RSC) is used to control the generator speed and reactive power [11]. The RSC controls the generator to achieve maximum power point tracking. In one classification, the control approaches of the DFIG are categorized in two groups: classic control approaches using PI regulators and advanced control approaches.

High power applications in electrical traction require high voltage supply for motors. The only way to use multilevel converters is actually to generate voltages with high magnitudes [12].

Several topologies of multilevel inverters have been studied and presented. Among them, neutral point clamped inverters [13], flying capacitors inverters also called imbricated cells [14], and series connected cells inverters also called cascaded inverters [15]. The industry often has used the neutral-point-clamped inverter [16].

However, the topology that uses series connected cells inverters presents some advantages, as smaller voltage rate (dU/dt) due to existence of higher number levels, producing less common-mode voltage across motor windings [17]. Furthermore, this topology is simple and its modular configuration makes it easily extensible for any number of desired output voltage levels. Fig. 2,a. shows the basic diagram of this topology with k partial cells represented by Fig. 2,b. The J th single-phase inverter is supplied by a DC-voltage source Ud](j = 1...k). The relationship between the number of series-connected single-phase inverters in each phase and the number of output voltage levels generated by this topology, respectively k and N, is given by: N = 2k + 1, in the case where there are equal voltages in all partial inverters.

In all the well-known multilevel converter topologies, the number of power devices required depends on the output voltage level needed [18]. However, increasing the number of power semiconductor switches also increases the converter circuit and control complexity and the costs. To provide a large number of output levels without increasing the number of converters, a uniform step asymmetrical multilevel inverters (USAMI) can be used [19].

The sliding mode control achieves robust control by adding a discontinuous control signal across the sliding surface, satisfying the sliding condition. Nevertheless, this type of control has an essential disadvantage, which is the chattering phenomenon caused by the discontinuous control action. To treat these difficulties, several modifications to the original sliding control law have been proposed, the most popular being the boundary layer approach [20, 21].

The disadvantages of the structure are complex network structure and inference mechanism. Therefore, to overcome the disadvantages of the aforementioned sliding mode controller (SMC), a new adaptive sliding mode controller (ASMC) is developed to estimate the unknown bound of uncertainty which is obtained in the sense of Lyapunov stability theorem to minimize the control effort and attenuate chattering [22], robustness and rapidity [23]. In addition, estimating the disturbance in terms of the sliding function dynamics is that, it results in a simple linear dynamics and hence the estimator can be made simple [24]. And scheme guarantees asymptotic convergence of states and external disturbances [25]. An adaptive sliding mode controller is developed to track the speed for maximum power extraction.

In order to reduce the chattering problem in SMC, a small boundary layer around the sliding surface. However this method can lead to solve the chattering problem but usually there exist a finite steady state error and so asymptotical convergence is lost. As another solution, adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control (AFSMC) [26]. An

AFSMC was proposed by combining the tuning online characteristic of an AFC and the robust characteristic of a conventional SMC. In an AFSMC, the controller includes two parts: a fuzzy equivalent controller designed based on an AFC scheme and a reaching controller based on a SMC scheme [27]. An AFSMC that control the uncertain nonlinear chaotic systems and unknown robotic systems [28], the controller proposed is composed of two terms: an auxiliary control law which is designed to compensate and uncertainties of parameters and a primary control law which ensure a good tracking. Another advantages of this controller is the using of Lyapunov approach to guarantee the stability and convergence analysis [29]. As another solution to eliminate chattering phenomenon and achieve zero steady state error [26].

System modeling. The WT model. For a horizontal axis wind turbine, the output mechanical power extracted from the wind is given by [30]:

Pt = 2 PCoef 2, P>R V3, (1)

where PCoef is the power coefficient which is a function of both tip speed ratio 2, and blade pitch angle p (deg), and vis the wind speed (m/s), p is the air density (kg/m3), and R is the radius of the turbine (m). In this work the PCoef equation is approximated using a non-linear function according to [31]:

r( + 0.1) _

(2)

18.5 - 0.3(/?-2)

PCoef =(0.5 - 0.167)?- 2)sin

- 0.0018(2- 3)p- 2).

The tip speed ratio is given by:

X = QtR/v , (3)

where O is the angular velocity of WT.

Proposed 19-level USAMI. Multilevel inverters generate at the AC-terminal several voltage levels as close as possible to the input signal. The output voltage step is defined by the difference between two consecutive voltages. A multilevel converter has a uniform or regular voltage step, if the steps Am between all voltage levels are equal. In this case the step is equal to the smallest DC-voltage, ud\ [32]. This can be expressed by

ud1 = Au = us2 - us1 = us3 - us2 = ... = usN - us(N-1) (4)

If this is not the case, the converter is called a non uniform step CHBAMI or irregular CHBAMI. An USCHBAMI is based on DC-voltage sources to supply the partial cells (inverters) composing its topology which respects to the following conditions:

udi < ud2 ^... ^ udk;

j-i

Udj ^ 1 + 2ZZ

l=1

where k represents the number of partial cells per phase and j = 1...k.

The number of output voltage levels depends on the number of cells per phase and on the corresponding supplying DC-voltages. Equation 6 shows that in certain cases, there are many possibilities for setting the partial DC-voltages to obtain the same number of levels. These possible redundant solutions are another degree of freedom for the designer

Among several modulation strategies, the multi-carrier sub-harmonic PWM technique has been receiving an increasing attention for symmetrical multilevel converters [33]. This modulation method can also be used to control asymmetrical multilevel power converters.

The SPWM is also known as the multi-carrier PWM because it relies on a comparison between a sinusoidal reference waveform and vertically shifted carrier waveforms N - 1 carriers are therefore required to generate N levels. The carriers are in continuous bands around the zero reference. They have the same amplitude Ac and the same frequency fc. The sine reference waveform has a frequency fr and an amplitude Ar. At each instant, the result of the comparison is 1 if the triangular carrier is greater than the reference signal and 0 otherwise. The output of the modulator is the sum of the different comparisons which represents the voltage level. The strategy is therefore characterized by the two following parameters, respectively called the modulation index and the modulation rate:

m = fc/fr ; (7)

r =—__A.. (8)

The reference voltages are given as follows:

iur, = urmax sin(2^frt- (j -1) 3);

|(/, j) e{(a,1), (b, 2), (c, 3)}.

We propose to develop a 19-level USAMI composed of k = 3 partial inverters per phase with the following DC-voltage sources: = 1p.u, u2 = 3p.u and u^ = 5p.u. For this configuration (1, 3, 5), the total harmonic distortion (THD) of output voltage is smaller than configurations (1, 1, 7) and (1, 2, 6). Fig. 3 shows the output voltage in each partial inverter and the 19-level USAMI output voltage Va in the first leg.

The stator and rotor angular velocities are linked by the following relation: a>s =a> + a>r. The generator mechanical and electromagnetic torques (Cem and Cr) are related, if the viscous friction coefficient is taken into account, as follows:

Field oriented control of the DFIG. In order to easily control the production of electricity by the wind turbine, we will carry out an independent control of active and reactive powers by orientation of the stator flux. By choosing a diphase reference frame d-q related to the stator spinning field pattern and aligning the stator vector flux with the axis d, we can write

Wds =VS and Wqs = 0. (13)

The electromagnetic torque becomes:

(VdS = 0;

tVqs =asWs.

By supposing that the electrical supply network is stable, having for simple voltage VS, which led to a stator flux ws constant. This consideration associated with Equation (15) shows that the electromagnetic torque only depends on the q-axis rotor current component. Using Equation (16), a relation between the stator and rotor currents can be established

In steady state, the second derivative terms of the two equations in 21 are nil. We can thus write:

The third term, which constitutes cross-coupling terms, can be neglected because of their small influence. These terms can be compensated by an adequate synthesis of the regulators in the control loops.

With the hypothesis that led to a stator flux constant, the electrical supply network is stable, having for simple voltage VS.

Control strategies of the DFIG. In this section, we have chosen to compare the performances of the DFIG with three different nonlinear controllers: SMC, ASMC and AFSMC. The control system can be designed as shown in Fig. 4. Based on Equations (18) and (21), the blocks RP, Rq, RIqr and RIdr represent respectively the stator powers and the rotor currents regulators.

Sliding mode controller synthesis. The sliding mode technique is developed from variable structure control to solve the disadvantages of other designs of nonlinear control systems. The sliding mode is a technique to adjust feedback by previously defining a surface. The system which is controlled will be forced to that surface, then the behavior of the system slides to the desired equilibrium point. The control function will satisfy reaching conditions in the following form:

K is a constant and is chosen to compensate for uncertainties and disturbances, sat(S(x)/^ is the proposed saturation function, is the boundary layer thickness. In this paper we propose the Slotine method

chattering. Further, Kasmc (t) = 0 which results in saturation of the control gain Kasmc(t).

Adaptive fuzzy sliding mode controller. The disadvantage of sliding mode controllers is that the discontinuous control signal produces chattering. In order to eliminate the chattering phenomenon, we propose to use the adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control. This paper proposes an AFSMC which is designed to control the active and reactive power of the DFIG shown in Fig. 7. Besides advantage of stability and robustness and convergence of the control system are guaranteed by using the Lyapunov method. This control following from

Adaptive sliding mode controller. The main obstacles for application of sliding mode control are two phenomena: high activity of control action and chattering. In this section we propose an adaptive sliding mode controller whose switching gain is adapted based on the disturbance estimation, this control proposed in [34]. The ASMC could be considered as an advance version of basic sliding mode control that is also in the topics of many advance control studies. The ASMC control scheme is shown in Fig. 6. This method is often used low overshoot, low setting time, and robustness against disturbance, chattering reduction, no need for the prior knowledge of uncertainty bound, minimum control effort.

three controllers, the stator active and reactive generated powers tracks almost perfectly their reference and ensures a perfect decoupling between the two axes. Therefore it can be considered that the three types or controllers have a very good performance for this test. On the other hand, Fig. 10 shows the harmonic spectrum of one phase stator current of the DFIG obtained using Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) technique for the three controllers. It can be clear observed that the THD is reduced for AFSMC supplied by 19-level USAMI (THD = 0.67 %) when compared to AFSMC (THD = 1.79 %) and ASMC (THD = 1.91 %) and SMC (THD = 2.06 %) supplied by conventional inverter (i.e. 2-level inverter). Therefore it can be concluded that proposed controller (AFSMC) supplied by 19-level USAMI is the most effective in eliminating chattering phenomenon and to reduce the current harmonics.

Sensitivity to the speed variation. The main object of this test is to analyze the influence of a speed variation of the DFIG on reactive and active powers for three controllers. For this objective and at time t = 0.04 s, the speed was varied from 150 rad/s to 170 rad/s as its shown in Fig. 11. Simulation results are shown in Fig. 12.

This figure express that the speed variation produces a slight effect on the powers curves of the system with ASMC controller, while effect is almost negligible for the system with AFSMC one. It can be noticed that this last has a nearly perfect speed disturbance rejection; indeed only very small power variation can be observed (fewer than 2 %). This result

is attractive for wind energy application quality and to ensure stability of the generated power when the sped is varying.

Robustness tests. The aim of these tests is to analyze the influence of the DFIG's parameters variation on the controllers' performance. The DFIG is running at its nominal speed. To test the robustness of the used controllers, parameters of the machine have been modified as follows: the values of the rotor and stator resistances are doubled while the values of inductances Ls, Lr and M are divided by 2. The obtained results are presented in Fig. 13. These results show that parameters variation of the DFIG presents a clear effect on the powers curves (especially in their errors curves) and that the effect appears more significant for ASMC controller than that with AFSMC one. Thus it can be concluded that this last is the most robust among the proposed controllers studied in this work.

Conclusion. The modeling and the control of a WT conversion system based on a DFIG connected directly to the grid by the stator side and fed by a 19-level inverter USAMI on the rotor side has been presented in this paper. This kind of variable speed systems has several advantages over the traditional WT operating

methods, such as an increase in the energy captured and the reduction of the mechanical stress. Our objective was the implementation of a robust decoupled control system of active and reactive powers generated by the stator side of the DFIG in order to make the system insensible with the external disturbances, parametric variations and to ensure a better execution of the DFIG. In the first step, we started with a study of modeling on the whole system. In second step, we present a vector control strategy in order to control active and reactive power exchanged between the stator the DFIG and the grid. In third step, three different controllers are synthesized and compared. In term of power reference tracking with the DFIG in ideal conditions, the SMC ensures a perfect decoupling between the two axes comparatively to the other controllers where the coupling effect between them is clear. The phenomenon of «chattering» associated with the control by sliding mode has a major drawback because it can excite the dynamics of high frequency control which makes it undesirable. In order to eliminate the chattering, we propose to use the AFSMC. Basing on all these results we conclude that robust control method as AFSMC can be a very attractive solution for devices using DFIG such as wind energy conversion systems and establish its suitability for the system drive.
