Abstract

This study presents a control strategy for a Squirrel Cage Induction Generator (SCIG)-based wind energy conversion system. Control strategies of the AC/DC/AC converter is presented along with the mathematical modeling of the employed configuration. The maximum power point extraction of the wind turbine is addressed along with the proposed strategy. The backstepping approach is introduced to control the generator speed and regulate the flux. The wind system is then simulated in MATLAB-SIMULINK and the developed model is used to illustrate the behavior of the system. The simulation results are presented and discussed at the end of this study.
