Abstract: This paper presents the use of induction generator turbine machines with simplified frequency control as a direct drive solution for wind energy conversion. An offshore wind farm system is proposed utilising a VSC-HVDC connection. The wind farm will contain variable speed wind turbines driving Squirrel Cage Induction Generators (SCIG). The study will look at the electrical performance of the generators with real wind data and the design control implications with a VSC-HVDC link. The performance of the system is verified by computer simulation using the Dymola/Modelica software platform with the ObjectStab power systems analysis toolbox. This paper presents the design of independently developed optimised power system models for variable speed wind turbine machines with simplified pitch angle and frequency control with a VSC-HVDC link for grid interconnection.
