MPPT for Wind Energy Conversion with Simplified Curve Fitting Approach

Mohammad Waseem Akram, Mohammad Naushad, Nicky Balani


This paper proposes a simplified curve fitting approach to decide the duty cycle of the dc-dc converter used in WECS and thereby to track maximum power available in the wind turbine. Converter control control is another key aspect in a wind energy conversion system. A novel stand-alone wind energy conversion system based on MPPT and control curve fitting method is developed in Matlab/Simulink software in this paper. Results of simulation show that the novel wind energy conversion system can have good performance of MPPT and the high quality of output voltage.
