Control of Power Electronics Converters for Wind Turbines



Power electronics converters enabled the wide deployment and high penetration of the variable speed wind turbines in the modern power system. With the increase of the hub height and rotor diameter, there are great challenges for the turbine control. Robust and high dynamic control of the power converter and pitch driver plays an important role in modern wind turbines.



Dr. Hongwu She received the B.S. degree from the Naval University of Engineering, Wuhan, China, in 2004; and then received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), Wuhan, China, in 2007 and 2011, respectively. From 2011 to 2017, he was with the GE Global Research Center (Shanghai). Since 2017, he has been with the Envision Energy, currently he is the Technical Director for Grid Integration. His R&D experience include wind energy conversion system control, grid integration, and AC motor drive systems. He has published 20+ peer reviewed papers and holds 10+ patents.
