The efficiency of the variable speed wind energy conversion systems (WECS) can be greatly improved using an appropriate control strategy. In this paper, nonlinear control for wind energy conversion system (WECS) based on the permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) is investigated in order to maximize the generated power from wind turbine. The control(More)
This study presents a comparison of linear and nonlinear control to regulate the DC-link voltage and power factor correction of a wind farm equipped with squirrel cage induction generators (SCIGs), connecting to a 22-kV distribution network. Both active and reactive powers are employed in 2 independent control laws. The proposed control strategies are(More)
This paper presents a nonlinear control method to track the maximum power point of wind turbine equipped with Squirrel Cage Induction Generator (SCIG). Since the mechanical power of wind turbine is function of its shaft speed at a given wind velocity, the proposed controller provides the desired voltage at the output of Voltage Source Converter (VSC) so as(More)
This paper expands a nonlinear fuzzy based control strategy applied to a variable speed Wind Energy Conversion System WECS founded on Doubly Fed Induction Generator DFIG. As power network assists a high wind energy emergence, the studied WECS represents a wind farm WF of 500MW connected to the Grid and dispatched in such a way that it can contribute to grid(More)
