Doubly Fed Induction Generator Test Beds Development

The purpose of this project was to design and procure a doubly fed induction generator test beds system, which can be used to help engineers and students learn more about the operation of wind turbines.

Team DFIG was sponsored by Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories and was mentored by Dr. Joe Law and Dr. Brian Johnson. The design team consisted of three seniors from the University of Idaho: John Feusi (Mechanical Engineering), Wes Matej (Electrical Engineering) and Carlos Solis (Computer Engineering).
