 Plot the frequency vs. wind speed

 Compute the average and standard deviation of wind speed

 Fit a Wiebull pdf function to the wind speed data

 Fit a Rayleigh pdf function to the wind speed data

 Compare the two function

Write a matlab program that simulates the dynamic model of wind energy induction generator. Plot the currents, speed and torque of the induction generator



L11=10 mH; L12=9.8 mH; L22=10 mH; r1=1.2 mOhm; r2=1.3 mOhm

Inertia constant J=6*10^6 kg m^2;

Operating conditions

f=60 Hz; output power =-2 MW; pf=0.7 lagging; Terminal voltage v=690 V;

Injected voltage v=-100 V;


Torque change =2000 Nm;

Assume that the system damping is zero and 10 respectively.
