Abstract

The wind power is well adapted nowadays as solution to the production of electricity or for mechanical use. But wind is a very fluctuating source of energy; it generates a non-permanent and variable power to the loads. This paper presents a strategy to improve the quality of the electric power produced by a wind turbine under variable speed. The mathematical modeling of the various elements of the conversion system is performed. Two control strategies are developed to improve the quality of the energy produced by the wind turbine. The first consists to a judicious management of the DC bus and the second to control the inverters with a corrective proportional resonant. The results obtained after implementation and simulation under Matlab/Simulink platform are presented.
