Abstract

The aim of this paper is to create a novel combination between two controls, maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and Pitch angle control system of a variable-speed wind turbine. The main objective sought is to achieve the maximization of the power produced by the fixed pitch angle turbine through the MPPT control in the zone 02 of operation. Then, limit the power to its nominal value by using the Pitch control with variable pitch angle in zone 03 of operation. Our contribution will be to propose strategies based on two types of controllers. The first is the control by the MPPT control, it is applied in light winds to extract the maximum power. The second is Variable Pitch Control, which is applied in strong winds to keep power constant at its nominal value, as well as protecting the wind turbine from high winds. For this, linear and non-linear control laws (PI, SC) respectively are implemented to achieve the defined objective. The simulation results show the feasibility and effectiveness of the techniques used.
