Renewable energy sources require power electronics for the power processing in order to enhance the operation and performance. In this study, a method of harnessing wind power on-board of an electric vehicle using switched reluctance generator (SRG) coupled to a wind turbine, which is mounted on the vehicle is discussed. The wind turbine integrated with SRG poses a number of challenges for vehicle application as the location and the design are special. The present investigation aims at acquiring the first hand experience in the practical implementation of such a system for on-board power generation. Various configurations of wind turbines are studied. The experimental test from a prototype is presented to validate the theoretical predictions.
