Wind Energy

The AEL-WPP is used to investigate the design and operation of modern wind power stations. The AEL-WPP consists of a prime motor that moves a double-feed induction generator (as a generator for the wind power plant).

This power station includes a SCADA Control Systems which allows the following:
In one hand the SCADA allows the user to configure the desired wind curve for the experiment. Once the wind curve is configured and the user starts the experiment, the Software controls automatically the AEL-SERIN/CA-1K motor to generate the same wind curve configured by the user.

In the other hand the SCADA allows to visualize the most important signals of the systems (rotor current, stator current, line voltage, dc bus voltage of the back to back inverter…) and allows to visualize the most important measurements of the system (value of the rotor active power and reactive power, stator active power and reactive power, total active and reactive power, speed of the generator shaft…).


The software also allows the user to save the experiment data, to analyze the results after the test, through a data visualizer included with the software. The data format of the saved files are compatible with Microsoft excel. This application can be combined with other applications of generation, transmission/distribution and load systems areas.

•N-SERIN/CA-1K. Computer Controlled Advanced Industrial Servosystems Trainer (for AC Motors).
The AEL-SERIN/CA-1K allows to generate wind curves configured by the user through the AELWPP/CCSOF software.
The AEL-SERIN/CA-1K trainer consists on an Control Interface module connected to a three-phase motor and a computer (AEL-PC). The control interface has an 20-bits incremental encoder that controls the speed, position and torque of the motor.
The USB communication between the control interface and the PC provides the AEL-SERIN/CA-1K the possibility of commanding the motor from the PC and visualize the most important signals of the motor: Velocity, Position and Torque Control.
Control Interface module:
3 Digital outputs:
Each output has a green LED that indicates if the output is active or not.
Encoder outputs:
Two pair of outputs (CH A Out, CH B Out and their respective denied outputs) that are TTL signals of incremental position generated by the encoder feedback. These signals indicate the direction of rotation of the motor.
One pair of outputs (CH Z Out and their denied) that TTL works as marker of pulses. This signal indicates the motor speed.
Relay output: this output is a relay, and it belongs together with the output 4 that it can be in the software inside the I/O digital label.
3 Analog outputs: can be controlled by software to be a certain valve of the internal variables.
6 Digital inputs: digital inputs for those signals that are introduced to enable the different available functions in the software.
6 Buttons: they are good to enable the digital inputs. When the button is pressed, the digital Input will be activated, making what has been defined by the software.
6 Switches: they have the same function as the buttons, but with the only difference that they are switches and, therefore, maintain the position fixed (open or closed).
Switch outfitter of digital inputs: there is a switch that enables the digital inputs. When the green LED is on, the inputs will be enabled.
Analog input: this input allows an analog use directly of the user. It is an A/D input.
