    Abstract: This paper proposes a simple sensorless maximum power extraction control strategy for a variable speed wind energy conversion system (VSWECS) based on permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG). The PMSG is connected to the grid through a switch mode rectifier and a three phase voltage source inverter (VSI). Control of the generator side convert... Show More
