Maximum Power Tracking by VSAS approach for Wind Turbine, Renewable Energy Sources

Nacer Kouider Msirdi, B Meghni, A Saadoun


This paper gives a review of the most efficient algorithms designed to track the maximum power point (MPP) for catching the maximum wind power by a variable speed wind turbine (VSWT). We then design a new maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm using the Variable Structure Automatic Systems approach (VSAS). The proposed approach
leads efficient algorithms as shown in this paper by the analysis and simulations.
