  author={V. Seshadri Sravan Kumar and R. R. Joshi and R. C. Bansal},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion},
This paper describes a new wind energy conversion scheme, where fuzzy logic principles and four-leg-improved novel matrix converter (MC) model are used for performance enhancement and efficiency optimization, particularly for sites where most of the time low wind speeds prevail. The MC is intended as the interface medium between the induction generator and the utility grid. The power factor at the interface with the grid is controlled by the MC to ensure purely active power injection into the… CONTINUE READING
