Optimal Power Conversion of Standalone Wind Energy Conversion Systems Using Fuzzy Adaptive Control

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 247)


This chapter presents an advanced control technique to deal with the maximum power conversion problem of a standalone Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECS) with Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators (PMSG). The proposed method, which is different from traditional Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) methods, is based on a fuzzy adaptive control scheme in which the adaptation is obtained from the Lyapunov analysis and carried out by the fuzzy logic technique. The superiority of the advanced control technique is shown by numerical simulations with comparison between the proposed controller’s performance and a nonlinear feedback linearization controller’s performance.
