Keywords:energy development, strategic planning, artificial intelligence, neural network, agent model, Russia
In recent times, various types of wind generators have been linked to the power grids globally and the focus has been to control them to be more efficient and reliable. This study concisely discusses performance analysis, modeling, and assessment of different wind generators (permanent magnet synchronous generator, doubly-fed induction generator, squirrel cage induction generator), covering their benefits, drawbacks, and impact on the electric power systems. This comparison aims to guarantee that their technical and economic evaluations are comparable, allowing engineers to make a more informed decision about which generator is best suitable for their installation. Findings for the investigated wind generators lead to significant observations about their application fields, such as permanent magnet synchronous generator outperforms doubly-fed induction generator and squirrel cage induction generator, especially during grid disruptions; on the other hand, squirrel cage induction generator is simple and inexpensive.
