Wind energy has gained a growing worldwide interest due to the nonstop rise in fuel cost. The main aim of the wind-energy system is to extract the maximum power present in the wind stream. In order to extract the highest power, the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm is used. This paper proposes the fuzzy logic MPPT controller to track the maximum power from the wind generation system. The maximum power is achieved based on the rotor speed of the wind system which consists of wind turbine and PMSG. The error and change in error is given as input to the fuzzy logic and its output is connected to the boost converter. The voltage from the dc link is controlled by the Voltage Source Inverter (VSI), and it is placed in grid side converter control. The proposed system is designed and evaluated in MATLAB/SIMULINK. Simulation results show the good dynamic performance of the proposed system.

Keywords: Wind turbine, Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG), Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and Fuzzy control.
