Abstract

The use of boost chopper in Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) aims to capture maximum power at any wind speed condition. It is reached by adjusting the duty cycle of boost chopper. In this paper, fuzzy logic algorithm is used to find the duty cycle value which yields the maximum power output. This control scheme is verified by PSIM simulation. Another MPPT method is also simulated as a comparison.
