Power electronic conversion system for small power plants based on renewable sources

Quite often energy in small wind and water plants is produced by PM synchronous generators which work at variable rotational speed. This energy has to be converted by means of a power electronic unit to fit to the three-phase power grid parameters. The main purpose of the control strategy is to transfer maximum possible amount of energy to the power grid.
