abstract
Grid-connected small wind turbines are a promising technology to further increase the share of renewables in the energy supply. Although their impact on the environment is proven to be advantageous, the cost effectiveness needs to increase to favor a market breakthrough. This can be achieved with technological improvements, driven by research. The most obvious improvements can be found in the optimization of each component. However, the combination of highly efficient components does not necessarily result in an efficient system. The interactions between the subcomponents also play an important role in the total system efficiency. Therefore, the interaction between the converter and the generator will be the focus of this research. The impact of the control strategy of the converter on the generator efficiency will be explained in this paper.
