Analysis and Simulation of Wind Turbine Optimal Control Considering wind Turbulence Characteristics

Bo Gu, Liu Yongqian, Hou Yuxiang, Kang Shun


A maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm of wind turbines considering wind turbulence characteristics is presented in this paper. The turbulence characteristics of natural wind are analyzed, and the natural wind speed model is established. A MPPT algorithm based on extremum-seeking control (ESC) is proposed, which considers the turbulence characteristics containing in wind speed. The goal of the MPPT algorithm is to keep the wind turbines running at the maximum wind energy utilization coefficient point stably. The algorithm is modeled and analyzed, and the simulation results show that the MPPT algorithm is correct and effective.
