A fuzzy logic pitch angle control system implementation for OWC power plant generators

Abstract

In the paper, takes the improvement of the performance for an OWC converter from the mechanical side. An OWC conversion structure was proposed, studied, modeled and simulated using a FEM simulator. A wave generation method was applied instead of using an ordinary sin wave generator on the tank to make the waves the closest possible to the real sea waves. A mechanical prototype was built for this purpose to get an oscillated wave model. On the electrical side a pitch angle control system based on fuzzy set was applied on the turbine to be auto-adapted for the fast variation of the airflow speed to establish and maximize the extracted power from the OWC the model have been studied and implemented and tested to validate the results obtained by simulation.
