Sliding Mode Control Design of Wind Power Generation system based on PMSG



This paper aims to implement a first order sliding Mode Control (SMC) of Permanent Synchronous Generators (PMSG) based Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECS) in order to track the maximum power point. The SMC is a very popular approach due to its robustness in dealing with the non-linear electrical power systems. In this paper, the application of the SMC method is by using the dynamical model of the PMSG in d-q frame. Hence, the regulation of the direct and quadrature currents as well as the high-speed shaft rotation speed leads to control the active and reactive power output. The performances and robustness of PMSG and wind-turbine are analyzed and compared by simulation based Matlab / Simulink
