SAAVEDRA-MONTES, Andrés Julián; RAMOS-PAJA, Carlos Andrés  and  RAMIREZ-GOMEZ, Carlos Alejandro. Model-based maximum power point tracking for wind generators. Antioquia [online]. 2016, n.79, pp.73-85. ISSN 0120-6230.

A model-based maximum power point tracking solution for wind systems is presented in this paper. The strategy uses the Loss-free resistor concept and a generator model, which relates the load impedance required to produce the maximum power depending on the generator rotor speed. The strategy performance is validated through simulation and the emulation of a multi-machine wind generation system. With the proposed strategy, it is possible to extract the maximum power of each generator and, therefore, the maximum power of the generation system.

Keywords : Power optimization; wind generation; loss-free resistor; multi-machine wind system.
