Research on Maximum Power Point Tracking Control System of Variable Speed Wind Turbine
This paper analyzes the operating characteristics of wind turbine and introduces the principle of maximum power point tracking control system of variable speed wind turbine. A improved maximum power tracking control strategy is proposed for large inertia wind power systems in order to achieve maximum wind power capture and increased utilization of wind energy when wind turbines is below the rated wind speed. A variable speed wind power generation system is modeled and simulated in the Simulink environment of the Matlab .The simulation results proves the correctness and feasibility of the tracking control strategy suggested in this paper.
