Maximum Power Point Tracking for Wind Turbine Using Integrated Generator–Rectifier Systems

Project Code :TEPGPS484


The main objective of this project Deployment of the integrated systems in offshore wind energy which requires maximum power point tracking (MPPT) capability.


In this project, Offshore wind is a rapidly growing renewable energy resource. Harvesting offshore energy requires multimegawatt wind turbines and high efficiency, high power density, and reliable power conversion systems to achieve a competitive levelized cost of electricity. 

An integrated system utilizing one active and multiple passive rectifiers with a multiport permanent magnet synchronous generator is a promising alternative for an electromechanical power conversion system. Deployment of the integrated systems in offshore wind energy requires maximum power point tracking (MPPT) capability, which is challenging due to the presence of numerous uncontrolled passive rectifiers. This article shows feasibility of MPPT based on a finding that the active-rectifier d-axis current can control the total system output power. The MPPT capability opens up opportunities for the integrated systems in offshore wind applications.

Keywords: AC–DC power conversion, dc power systems, maximum power point trackers (MPPT), power conversion, rectifiers, wind energy, wind energy generation.
