Abstract

A new maximum power point tracking technique for permanent magnet synchronous generator based wind energy conversion systems is proposed. The technique searches for the system optimum relationship for maximum power point tracking and then controls the system based on this relationship. The validity of the technique is theoretically analysed, and the design procedure is presented. The primary merit of the proposed technique is that it does not require an anemometer or pre-knowledge of a system, but has an accurate and fast response to wind speed fluctuations. Moreover, it has the ability of online updating of time-dependant turbine or generator parameter shift. The validity and performance of the proposed technique is confirmed by MATLAB/Simulink simulations and experimentations.
