Condition monitoring of wind turbine generator (WTG) is important as defects in generators have shown to be a major reason for WT downtime [2,3]. Among all the possible faults occurring in WTG, faults related to stator comprise a significant percentage [4,5]. Stator short circuit fault is quite common in electrical machines [2]. In most cases, it begins as an inter-turn fault and eventually grows in to major one's such as coil to coil, phase to phase, phase open circuit and phase to ground, that may lead to system break down. It can cause catastrophic damage to the WTG in a very short time, making any fault compensation impossible. This demands better fault-detection and remediation strategies [5]. The evaluation of fault diagnosis method on the real physical system by creating a fault can be dangerous as this may lead to the destruction of wind turbine [6]. Therefore, for CM evaluation, adequate models of the test rigs are needed [6]. The test rig should drive the WTG in a similar way as a wind turbine imitating the non-stationary conditions and the torque developed for a given wind velocity under laboratory conditions [7]. The widely used and studied standalone wind turbine systems are based on induction generators due to their advantages over synchronous generators, such as low cost, small size, and low maintenance requirements. Therefore, induction generators are the suitable option as a WTG for isolated applications [8]. Though many researchers have worked on the stator fault both for induction motors as well as for induction generator, but a very few have done the research using the dynamic characteristic of the WT. WTs are of variable speed; variable load machines as a result, standard analysis techniques like Fourier analysis cannot be directly applied simply to the monitoring of non-stationary signals produced by WT [9,10]. Non-stationary signal faults detection by using current, voltage [11], power [12,13] has been performed using advanced signal processing techniques such as instanta- neous frequency [10,14], wavelet-based techniques [5,15], sequence network analysis[16], power signature analysis [12] and Short-Time Fourier transform (STFT) [6]. The quantification of the fault has been done using DWT [24,25], artificial neural networks [26,27]. Both these technique has been used successfully to model complex nonlinear dynamic systems. In most of the earlier research papers for CM, the various experimental setups are used for the non-stationary signal gen- eration at the generator output. These setups include test rig controlled by aerodynamics forces [12,17], wind tunnel [18], speed fluctuations by PLC [14] and analog inputs [10].

  2. 2. The main objective of this paper is modeling of the low-cost test rig and fault diagnosis of stator faults in SEIG (self-excited induction generator) in non-stationary conditions. The novelties of this research paper are summarized as follows: For CM of WT, a low-cost setup is designed and developed. The real-time interface for monitoring and control of WTE is designed in LabVIEW. It controls the prime mover according to the WT principle and follows the torque speed characteristics of WT. Hardware part of the emulator is developed to imitate the WT characteristics. Each component has been designed keeping in consideration flexibility and cost. The setup can be reconfigured for given specifications as each component is designed inde- pendently. The total cost of the setup is approx. $1200. The designed WT test rig follows the power curves of WT characteristics. The results show a very good operation in the whole operating range of the SCIG and due to its simplicity, real-time interfacing and control for monitoring; – it is suitable for practical use. Benchmarking of stator current signatures with already proven setup – available in the literature [9,13,17] (University of Manchester and Durham University). An experimental study shows that the proposed approach using the DWT quantitative analysis offers a good diagnostic cap- ability for interpreting the non-stationary WT CM signals. The method is in real time, it detects the fault at the moment of its existence in WT, which allows easy maintenance without damaging other parts of the system. The organization of this paper is as follows. The development of a wind turbine test rig is discussed in Section 2. Section 3 presents the experimental test results. The stator short circuit fault results are discussed in Section 4. The conclusion is given in Section 5. 2. Development of wind turbine test rig 2.1. Wind turbine modeling The aerodynamic power output of wind turbines (Po) can be modeled as [7,19]: Po ¼ 1=2ρCpAv3 ð1Þ where ρ¼air density (kg/m3 ), A¼WT swept area (m2 ), v¼wind speed (m/s) The fraction of the power extracted by the turbine is called the power coefficient (Cp), which depends on wind speed, shaft speed and the mechanical parameters such as shape and pitch angle (β) of the blades. The maximum value of Cp, theoretically given by the Betz limit [7,19] is 0.593. It is a function of tip speed ratio (TSR) (λ), which is defined as the ratio between the linear velocity of blade tip and the wind velocity. The TSR is given as: λ ¼ ωwR v ð2Þ where ωw ¼angular speed of WT (rad/s), R¼blade radius (m) The mechanical torque generated can be calculated from the WT power and the shaft speed as given by [19]: Tw ¼ Po ωw ¼ 1 2λ ρCpπR3 v2 ð3Þ 2.2. DC motor control strategy The DC motor control is based on the armature current reg- ulation. The schematic representation of a separately excited DC motor is in Fig. 1 [7].

The DC motor characteristic is such that, the mechanical power output of the machine is a function of the armature voltage Va and angular speed ωm under steady state. When a constant Va is applied to the motor the output power is a conic function of speed ωm. 2.3. Self-excited induction generator (SEIG) modeling The generated stator voltage and current are derived from d–q axis values using the equations below. Fig. 2(i) and (ii) shows the equivalent d–q axis circuit of SEIG. Across the stator windings of the generator a capacitor is con- nected. Using Kirchhoff’s voltage the loop Eqs. (8)–(11) of the SEIG equivalent circuit are written as [214]: Rsiqs þLIs diqs dt þLm diqr dt þ 1 C diqs dt ¼ Vcq ð8Þ Rriqr þLIr diqr dt þLm diqs dt þ 1 C diqr dt ¼ ωrλdr ð9Þ Rsids þLIs dids dt þLm didr dt þ 1 C dids dt ¼ ÀVcd ð10Þ Rridr þLIr didr dt þLm dids dt þ 1 C didr dt ¼ Àωrλqr ð11Þ At each step of integration, the magnetizing current has to be updated.

Stator modeling taking into account stator fault The dynamic model for the stator windings of the three-phase squirrel cage induction generator (Fig. 3) is developed and the relevant volt–ampere equations are: ÀVs ¼ RsIs þ d∅s dt ð16Þ Vs ¼ Vsa; Vsb; Vsc½ ŠT is the stator voltage vector; Is ¼ Isa; Isb; Isc½ ŠT is the stator current vector; Rs ¼ diag Rsa; Rsb; Rsc½ Š is a 3 by 3 stator resistance matrix;. ∅s ¼ ∅sa; ∅sb; ∅Vsc½ ŠT is a stator flux vector. With the Park transformation ðPsÞ, the voltage equations for the stator windings can be written as: ÀVsdq ¼ PsRsIsdqPÀ1 s þPs dðPÀ1 s ∅sdqÞ dt ¼ RSDQ Isdq þ d∅sdq dt þωs 0 À1 1 0 ! ∅sdq ð17Þ where RSDQ is the equivalent resistance matrix and is given by: RSDQ ¼ PsRsPÀ 1 s ¼ Rds Rsdq Rsdq Rqs # ð18Þ PS ¼ ffiffiffi 2 3 r sin ðθÞ sin θÀ2π 3 À Á sin θþ2π 3 À Á cos θ À Á cos θÀ2π 3 À Á cos θþ2π 3 À Á # ð19Þ is not a constant but depends on magnetizing current. 2.6. Wind Turbine Emulator (WTE) The emulation scheme is shown in Fig. 4. Steady-state char- acteristics of a given WT at various wind velocity are studied. The wind speed, turbine radius and angular speed of motor are con- sidered as inputs of this model. To calculate the reference torque, the control program reads wind velocity from an input file, shaft speed from tacho-generator and supply current from the current transducer [7]. The wind data file can be generated in different ways, depending on the desired test conditions, or even being real data from an anemometer. The electromagnetic torque of a DC motor should be equal to the reference torque of WT. From the mathematical model, the reference armature current is obtained, which is used to control the armature current of the DC motor by using PI controller and semi converter rectifier. It gives controlled rectified voltage depending upon the triggering pulses to thyr- istors for the regulation of DC motor armature voltage. The var- iation in armature voltage controls the motor current in accor- dance with the reference current and the system reaches a steady state. Here, the DC motor current is directly controlled so that the required torque is directly proportional to the current. Fig. 2. d–q axes equivalent circuit of SEIG. Fig. 3.

  4. 4. 2.7. Integration of system instrumentation A low-cost test bench equipped with 220 V, 1.5 kW squirrel cage induction machine with the prime mover, a 2.5 kW sepa- rately excited DC machine has been designed [20,21]. Based on required specifications and cost, Advantech 4704 based data acquisition card is selected. The model of a wind turbine and the PI controller are developed using LabVIEW software. The control panel designed in LabVIEW (Fig. 5) allows real time communica- tion between the setup and the user. Turbine parameters such as the wind velocity and turbine radius can be set by the user through the software. Various off grid-connected wind turbine system parameters as stator voltage, generated current and speed of machine are sampled at 2 kHz sampling rate using DAQ. A low- cost interfacing circuitry including the current transducer (CTs) and voltage transducer (VTs) are used to monitor the generator currents and terminal voltages. Signal conditioning is done to provide the interface the signals/sensors and the data acquisition system. The coordinate transformations, controllers and further calculations are carried out and current reference values are given to the PI controller. The block diagram of test rig is shown Fig. 6 and parameters are reported in Appendix. 3. Experimental results of wind turbine test rig The experimental results of the designed test rig are verified with the test rigs made at University of Manchester, UK and Dur- ham University UK [12,13,17]. The specifications of these test rigs are tabled in Appendix. The equations describing the stator current spectral content for the healthy conditions is [12] f k ind ¼ 6kð1ÀsÞ7l f ð20Þ Fig. 5.

  5. 5. where f is the fundamental frequency, s is the induction generator fractional slip, l ¼ 1; 2; 3…, k ¼ 1; 2; 3…: Constants k and l relate respectively to air-gap field space harmonics resulting from the layout of the machine and supply time harmonics in the current. For benchmarking [12], reduced set of steady state frequencies are listed in Table 1. The test rig was run up to the required super-synchronous speed for a constant wind speed of 7 m/s. The generated current is acquired using the current transducers and DAQ. The healthy current spectra in Figs. 7 [12] and Fig. 8 indicates a comparable spectral content despite different levels of rotor resistance. Frequencies ‘c’ and ‘d’ are related directly to the fundamental frequency and 3rd harmonics, consistent for all the test rigs. Machine dependent frequencies ‘a’ and ‘b’ are also present in all the machines. Frequencies ‘e’ and ‘f ’ also show the comparable results despite different operating conditions. 4. Short circuit fault In order to analyze the phase-to-phase faults, a short-circuit between two phases is considered. This fault can produce specified frequency components f short in different signals [15,23] as: f short ¼ f s n 1Àsð Þ p 7k k ¼ 1; 3; …:: n ¼ 1; 2; 3……::Þ ð21Þ where p is the number of pole-pairs, s is the per-unit slip and f s is the supply frequency. 4.1. Stator winding fault-experimentation Fault conditions were emulated by introducing phase to phase short circuit fault through a resistor. Terminal voltage contains unique fault frequency components that can be used for the stator winding fault detection. The only difficulty with this technique is that the data needs to be collected very quickly. With the appli- cation of short circuit fault, the large amount of current flows through the shortest path causing the machine to heat up very quickly. So the fault was applied for a very short duration of 0.2 s. Application of this method allowed multiple tests of the WTG to be performed without permanent damage. A terminal voltage measured from the test rig under various cases (Table 2) has been processed for CM of WTG for the stator winding fault diagnosis. The first set of experiments was performed under static conditions with no load and a constant wind speed of 7 m/s as shown in Fig. 9; the shaft speed almost remains constant at 1480 RPM, generated voltage is 220 V and the generated current is almost negligible. The next set of experiments was performed with short circuit fault at no load, with constant and then variable wind conditions applied through the WT model as shown in Fig. 10. At full load, the generated current is max 0.5 A and terminal voltage is 220 V as shown in Fig. 11. Similarly Figs 12 and 13 show the generated current and terminal voltage at constant wind speed and variable wind speed respectively. 4.2. Signal processing using frequency domain analysis The power spectrum of voltage in healthy conditions at no load is shown in Fig. 14(a) and under full load is given in Fig. 14(b). The odd harmonics (i.e. 1st, 3rd, 5th), at 50 Hz, 143 Hz and 241 Hz are most evident under no load conditions and 50 Hz, 143 Hz and 239 Hz in full load conditions. In faulty condition and at no load, with n¼3, k¼1, and slip¼0.22, side bands at 20.75 Hz, 79.25 Hz, 120.75 Hz and 179.25 Hz around first and third harmonics are quite evident as shown in Fig. 15(a). Similarly, side bands at 22.5 Hz, 77.5 Hz, 118.5 Hz and 177.5 Hz are evident at full load Table 1 Constants for healthy current spectra.

  6. 6. conditions as shown in Fig. 15(b). Under variable wind speed conditions, the slip varies; the magnitudes of the above compo- nents of the fault are spread in a bandwidth proportional to the variation of speed as shown in Fig. 16(a). There are no clear side- bands available in case of no load under variable wind conditions. The same phenomena also exist under full load conditions as shown in Fig. 16(b). The results are summarized in Table 3. As a result of varying slip under transit conditions, the use of Fourier analysis may result in an erroneous diagnosis. For pro- viding a reliable diagnosis procedure, a more appropriate techni- que is required. 4.3. Stator winding fault diagnosis using discrete wavelet transformation An effective fault diagnosis requires the measurements of a quantity-sensitive to the faults and a suitable method to obtain a diagnostic index and a threshold stating the edge between faulty and healthy condition. Under variable-speed conditions, the fault fre- quency components, whose amplitude is usually monitored for fault detection, are spread in frequency with width which is related to the load, speed and slip variations. The wavelet analysis allows the pro- cessing of the stator terminal voltage in such a manner that the fault Fig. 9.

  8. 8. frequency components can be shifted to a dedicated frequency band. In this way, the information related to the fault can be isolated and confined to obtaining a diagnostic index and a threshold stating the edge between faulty and healthy condition. As illustrated by Fig. 17, the logarithmically spaced frequency bands are obtained by dividing the frequency content of the original signal using DWT. A high-order mother wavelet is suitable for carrying out the DWT. If a low-order wavelet is used, there is an increase in the overlap between adjacent frequency bands and the frequency response gets worse.In this paper, a 10th order mother wavelet of Daubechies family has been chosen [24,25]. In order to cover the frequency band with a sampling frequency of fs¼2000 Hz, an eight level decomposition (J¼8) is chosen [5]. In this range, we can track the characteristics of default frequency components. For fault analysis, a diagnosis index based on multiresolution mean power indicator is introduced. The signal is decomposed at different frequency levels by MRA analysis. To reduce the computational time, only detail level dj is considered. In case any fault occurs, the distribution of the energy in signal changes at the resolution levels associated with the characteristic frequency bands of the default. Therefore, the increase in the energy constrained to certain details is measured as the appearance of an irregularity. The mean power concentrated in each detail dj generated by the MRA of the generated voltage signal is defined as below [24,25]: mPdj ¼ 1 N XN n ¼ 1 djðnÞ 2 ð22Þ Here N¼number of samples j¼level decomposition. The data flow of the MRA feature vector extraction is shown Fig. 18. The mean power of the details (d1 Àd8Þ resulting from wavelet decomposition at no-load (Case 1, 2, 3 Table 2) is shown in Fig. 19 (a) and under load conditions (Case 4, 5, 6 Table 2) is shown in Fig. 19(b).

  9. 9. There is a significant discrimination between healthy and faulty conditions. The fault discrimination is significantly increased at load in varying wind conditions especially at d5 (around funda- mental frequencies). By comparing the detail signal d5 calculated in fault conditions (Fig. 19(a) and (b)), it is clearly visible that there is an amplitude evolution of the faulty component for loaded conditions. 5. Conclusion The paper presents the development of a low-cost wind tur- bine test rig for detection and diagnosis of the stator winding fault. Various tests have been carried out on the test rig and the results are benchmarked with already proven test rigs developed at the Durham University and the University of Manchester. The measured current spectra are in good agreement and shows comparable results despite different operating conditions. The findings of research presented in this paper can be summarized as follows. The designed wind turbine test rig follows the power curves of wind turbine characteristics. The result shows a very good operation in the whole operating range of the SCIG and due to its simplicity, real-time interfacing, and control for monitoring – it is suitable for practical use. Stator winding fault can be successfully detected in normal IM using FFT analysis whereas in the case of WTG, due to variations in wind speed and hence slip variations, fault frequency com- ponents are not visible in FFT spectrum. Quantitative analysis using wavelet transformation has been performed to discriminate the healthy from faulty. The analysis shows the occurrence of characteristic patterns through the energy of the involved wavelet signals and oscillations appear- ing in the wavelet signals. The experimental results show that the proposed approach offers good diagnostic capability com- pared to the existing techniques. This work further can be extended to the following topics could be studied: Detection of the fault subtypes. There is the need to study the effect of electric drives, use dif- ferent generator types-DFIG, WRIG as these may change the electrical signature's. The influence of gear box components needs to be investigated. Appendix A See Tables A1–A4. Fig. 19.
