In Europe, USA, and Asia the wind power generation is increasing rapidly and this trend is going to continue due to economic viability of wind power generation. The technical advancement in power electronics is playing an important part in the development of wind power technology. 04 Capital cost per kW $2000–3000 $500–700 <$400 Operating life 5–7 Years 20 Years 30 Years Capacity factor (average) 15% 25–30% >30% Availability 50–65% 95% >95% Wind turbine unit size range 50–150 kW 300–1000 kW 500–2000 kW Power Electronics for Renewable Energy Sources Chapter | 1 51 electronics in control of fixed speed/variable speed wind turbines and interfacing to the grid is of extreme importance.

No switching of AC power between the different energy sources is required, which simplifies the electrical output interface. The power supplied to the load is not interrupted when the diesel generator is started. The inverter can generate a sine-wave, modified square-wave, or squarewave depending on the application. Disadvantages: The inverter cannot operate in parallel with the engine-driven generator, therefore the inverter must be sized to supply the peak load of the system. The battery bank is cycled frequently, which shortens its lifetime.

This control system generates the waveforms and regulates the waveform amplitude and phase to control the power flow between the inverter and the grid. The grid-interfaced PV inverters, voltage-controlled VSI (VCVSI), or current-controlled VSI (CCVSI) have the potential of bi-directional power flow. They cannot only feed the local load but also can export the excess active and reactive power to the utility grid. An appropriate controller is required in order to avoid any error in power export due to errors in synchronization, which can overload the inverter.
