against actual averaged currents from both generators. A shared Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) rectifier is controlled by PWM pulses to maintain the currents of both generators in phase. A Simulink model was constructed to test this control strategy; the results generated demonstrate that two turbines can be operated in parallel, whilst still maintaining an acceptable level of efficiency.
