This paper presents a Wind Turbine Emulator (WTE) with induction motor driven by scalar torque control inverter. Additionally, the closed loop torque and rotor flux was implemented so that the induction motor emulates the real behavior of the wind turbine. The wind turbine model is developed considering its aerodynamics characteristic. This model will define the torque level in the electrical generator shaft. The induction motor control system implemented is capable to regulate the electromagnetic torque and rotor flux independently. The simulated results demonstrate the effectiveness of the induction motor system control. The strategy control was implemented in simulation using Matlab/Simulink/SimpowerSystems.
