This paper gives a comparative analysis of the performance of
a wind turbine direct drive train system with PMSG and fully
rated converters when two different wind turbine models are
used for its assessment. The impact of the advanced AeroHydro-Servo-Elastic model, and the most common analytical
function wind turbine model, on the generator-converter
dynamics are assessed. Results corresponding to the system
response to steps up/down in wind speed and turbulent wind
speed conditions are presented and discussed in the paper. It
is found that below rated speed there is no significant
difference between results obtained from both models. Above
rated wind speed there exist some differences among results.
