Direct Fuzzy Adaptive Control for Standalone Wind Energy Conversion Systems

Abstract

This paper presents a direct fuzzy adaptive control for standalone Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECS) with Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators (PMSG). The problem of maximizing power conversion from intermittent wind of time-varying, highly nonlinear WECS is dealt with by an adaptive control algorithm. The adaptation is designed based on the Lyapunov theory and carried out by the fuzzy logic technique. Comparison between the proposed method and the feedback linearization method is shown by numerical simulations verifying the effectiveness of the suggested adaptive control scheme.
