This article presents the development of a novel control
for matrix converter interfaced permanent magnet wind energy conversion
system. Here, an adaptive fuzzy control algorithm incorporated
with a reversed matrix converter is proposed to yield maximum
energy with enhanced dynamic performance and low harmonic characteristics.
The control algorithm is implemented using a dSPACE
DS1104 real-time board (dSPACE, Paderborn, Germany). Feasibility
of the proposed system has been verified through simulation and
experiment results using a laboratory 1.2-kW prototype of a wind
energy conversion system under dynamic conditions.
