DC-link Control for Airborne Wind Energy Systems During Pumping Mode

Florian Bauer, Christoph M. Hackl, Korbinian Schechner Technische Universität München

Airborne wind energy (AWE) systems with electrical ma-chine on the ground are a promising alternative to classi-cal wind turbines. Such systems are operated in pumping mode with the reel-out phase generating electrical power and the reel-in phase dissipating power [1]. We discuss DC-link voltage control of the grid-side voltage source in-verter (VSI) which controls active power flow from the ma-chine to the grid. For pumping mode AWE systems, DC-link voltage control is a non-trivial task due to the bidirec-tional power flow: the underlying DC-link dynamics are nonlinear and non-minimum phase [2,3] during the reel-in phase. Control objective is to design a robust controller which achieves set-point tracking of the DC-link voltage for given set-point(s) under unknown loads.

We compare the classical PI controller design with con-stant gains with a PI controller design where the gains are adjusted online to the actual operating point and, hence, become state-dependent. Starting with the analy-sis of the linearised system dynamics, we derive stability bounds on the constant gains of the classical PI controller and illustrate the non-minimum phase behaviour during the reel-in phase. In a second step, we design the “adap-tive” PI controller where explicit expressions for the con-troller gains are derived based on pole placement and the physical boundaries of the system.

Based on realistic models of VSI, pulse width modula-tion, and filter [2,3], we illustrate the control performance of the classical PI controller and the ”adaptive” PI con-troller under load changes (see interval [0.0–0.5 s)) and set-point changes (see interval [0.5–0.9 s]) for decreas-ing values of the DC-link capacitance. The ”adaptive” PI

controller (blue line) shows a better tracking and distur-bance rejection capability than the classical PI controller (green line). For a small DC-link capacitance, the classi-cal PI controller even becomes unstable. The ”adaptive” PI controller remains stable and, so, allows to use smaller (cheaper) DC-link capacitors.
