Abstract This paper presents the converter design for a 20kW wind turbine generator. The converter consists of a phase controlled rectifier and a DC/DC boost converter. The rectifier makes the generator AC voltage match the DC voltage while the boost converter keeps the DC voltage constant. The generator's synchronous inductance acts as an AC inductor of boost converter so no extra DC inductor is required. This converter is designed to be efficient and cheap. However, this converter does result in higher power loss in the generator due to its non-sinusoidal phase current, especially when the firing angle is not equal to 0.
