Authors(3) :-Smitkumar S. Tandel, Jay S. Tandel, Krishnakant D. Tandel

This paper use a suitable power converter topology for a Wind Energy Conversion system with Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) for stand-alone operations. The present work presents the system in which a PMSG feeds an isolated load through a closed loop boost converter. The output voltage and frequency of the PMSG is variable in nature due to non uniform wind velocities. The variable ac output is rectified by a diode rectifier and maintained constant by a boost converter. The boost converter is provided with a closed loop feedback control, which is designed using PID controller. In this controller the output voltage is continuously sensed and duty ratio of the switch is varied to maintain the DC link voltage constant. The converter output is fed to three phase inverter which employs a sine PWM technique, the output of which is fed to the load. The power converters and together with independent control systems can effectively improve the output voltage and frequency of the wind PMSG feeding an isolated load. The whole system is simulated using MATLAB/ Simulink and the results are presented to demonstrate the veracity of the developed control scheme.
