Application of Magnetic Energy Recovery Switch (MERS) to Improve Output Power of Wind Turbine Generators
The experimental results of an innovative power conversion technology using magnetic energy recovery switch (MERS) in a wind turbine system with a synchronous generator to improve the output power and the efficiency are presented. The MERS can compensate for the reactance voltage of the generator. The output voltage of the system increases and the excitation power of the generator can be significantly reduced. The data indicate a great potential of the new power conversion technology to make the actual wind turbine system compact and to improve the efficiency.
