Today wind energy has emerged as an alternative energy source for power generation. This paper investigates about standalone Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) based wind energy conversion system (WECS) with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT). The proposed system comprises of Wind turbine (WT), PMSG, boost converter, uncontrolled diode rectifier, battery bank, bidirectional buck boost converter and dc load. Multi pole PMSG is best suited for low speed, wide range variable speed wind energy applications. Wind flow varies with time; as a result power produced also varies. As maximum power has to be tracked for varying wind speeds, perturbation & Observation (P&O) algorithm is implemented for MPPT. Battery storage system is essential to supply the load during low wind speed condition. In this paper, a simulation study of the proposed standalone system is done using SIMULINK in MATLAB. © 2016 IEEE.
