energy resources. Being a clean and vastly available energy

source, wind stands as the most promising alternative to

conventional schemes for electricity generation. Various options

are available for wind energy conversion however this work

focuses mainly on the direct driven permanent magnet

synchronous machines (PMSG) based variable speed wind

energy conversion system (WECS). Power electronic interface

in WECS effectively decouples the grid frequency from the

stator frequency, reduces mechanical stress and hence optimizes

systems performance [2]. Low speed operation of PMSG results

in multi-pole generator design. The low rotational speed of a

multi-pole PMSG also successfully eliminates the requirement

of a gear box.

In general PMSG based WECS are connected to the power

grid via full-size power converter. One of converter topologies

used in PMSG based VSWT comprises of generator side PWM

rectifier, DC-link, and grid side PWM inverter. Reliability of the

system is jeopardized when due to equipment fault or for

multi-phase PMSG. It is possible to simplify dynamic model for

a PMSG if it is implemented using rotor reference frame [3].

Dynamic model of three phase PMSG in rotor frame of

reference is shown in Fig.2 (i) and Fig. 2(ii). Like the case of

three phase PMSG, the dynamic model of a multi-phase machine

is developed making use of three sets of equations namely

voltage equations, flux linkage equations and motion equations

the outer loop is responsible for regulating DC-link voltage and

the parallel module from PMSG is plotted in Fig. 10.

Electromagnetic torque of the PMSG is controlled through q-
