Study Plan Prince Mate ACADEMIC BACKGROUND I am a Bachelor ’s graduate of M’hamed Bougara University. My final year project was ‘’Command of a doubly fed induction generator (Scherbius structure) based wind turbine’’ that is; Building a matlab/simulink model of the turbine, (DFIG) and applying the field oriented vector control scheme of the active and reactive power on the model. During my research I noticed there was a variation on the voltage output due to variations of the wind speed on the turbine which prompted a further need to study different ways which can be used to stabilize the voltage output like using multilevel semiconductor switches and introducing different methods allowing for compensation with reactive power and to filter off load current harmonics resulting from the complex static inverters. MY PROPOSED MASTER'S PROJECT IS ; “The design and implementation of an optimal control scheme of the power quality generated from an integrated wind and solar farm’’ . The primary area of research being focused on the design of power electronic system/scheme that will be used to reduce or eliminate harmonics in the power quality of the micro grid. INTRODUCTION Decentralized Production of Electrical energy will be the way of the future. Several sources of free and renewable energies will play a pivotal role in this development namely, Solar (thermic or PV), wind turbines. These are predominantly used in in the supply of energy in local isolated sites. Due to the unpredictability and intermittent nature of wind and solar energy, the management of energy in isolated grids in ensuring a constant supply of electricity poses a major headache for engineers across the globe.
