PROJECT TITLE :
Nonlinear Dynamic Power Tracking of Low-Power Wind Energy Conversion System
This paper addresses the use of variable structure control (i.e., sliding mode (SM) control) for improving the dynamic performance of a coffee-power wind energy conversion system (WECS) that is connected to a dc grid. The SM management is applied to simultaneously match one) the most power generation of the wind turbine system from the wind with two) the most power injection of the grid-connected power converter into the grid. The amount of energy extractable from a dynamically changing wind using the WECS with SM control is compared with that of classic PI control. Both the simulation and experimental results show that more energy will be harvested with the SM management as compared to the PI management for any dynamically changing or random wind conditions.
