Abstract: The study deals with the application details and validation of a wind turbine emulator (WTE) consisting of a user interface, 1.5kW squirrel-cage induction motor (IM) and separately excited direct current machine (DCM). To this end, an induction motor and direct current machine are mechanically coupled to behave like wind turbine. Thus, by controlling the asynchronous motor over wind data, the shaft of the asynchronous motor rotates like the high turbine shaft of the wind turbine and emulates the wind turbine in the laboratory environment. The user interface includes 12 commercial wind turbines with similar characteristics. The user selects the wind data for a day, then selects the wind turbine and operates the system. The system generates reference speed information in accordance with the user's preferences. The WTE calculations are performed on a PC and 32 bit ARM cortex board, both connected on UART. The generated speed information is applied to the frequency converter via the PI control technique and the induction motor is driven according to the reference speed. The purpose of the study is the hardware implementation of a wind energy conversion system for control and online monitoring in a laboratory environment. The system will allow testing various wind data and performing efficiency analyzes at any time and will enable the testing of small-scale power converters for wind power systems.
