With the rapid development of wind power generation technology worldwide, the influence of intermittent and fluctuating characteristics of wind power generation on the microgrid and load is attracting a lot of attention along with its increasing penetration. Aimed at solving the problem that only wind speed variation is considered in the generation plan of traditional small-scale wind power generation applications, this article presents a set of control schemes for the switched-reluctance-generator-based small-scale wind power generation system with the integrated energy storage system. Considering the possibility of off-grid operation of small-scale wind power generation systems in the areas where the grid is weak or even uncovered, the proposed control scheme increases the consideration of dynamic changes in load and energy storage unit. To improve the utilization efficiency of small-scale wind power generation, a step control scheme is proposed combining maximum power tracking control with power balance control. The two-stage inverter is established to generate ac 110V/60Hz outputs by voltage closed-loop control in boost circuit of front stage and proportional integral (PI) control in the inverter circuit of the second stage. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed control schemes is verified experimentally.
