Abstract: Among all the renewable energy conversion systems wind energy conversion systems becoming most promising area especially at offshore locations due to availability of huge amount of wind power round the clock. This paper summarizes a review and recent advances happening in some most commonly used generators and power converters configurations at offshore onshore wind farm. A comparison among all the different configurations has been done on the basis of fixed variable speed operation, MPPT ability, FRT ability, power converter utilization, reactive power compensation, with and without gear-box and current market status.
Keywords: Energy conversion systems, Wind energy conversion systems, Offshore locations, Offshore onshore wind farm, MPPT ability, FRT ability, Power converter utilization, Reactive power compensation.
