Maximum Power Point Tracking Based on Sliding Mode Control

Boulaam, K.
Boukhelifa, A.
In this paper, a non-linear control algorithm based on a sliding mode theory is proposed to maximize the power extraction of a variable speed wind turbine. This algorithm works in the partial load region. It has been used to control the wind turbine speed so that it reaches the desired value which corresponds to the maximum power point. In order to prove its efficiency, it has been compared with a classic linear control using a PI controller. Simulation tests are established using Matlab-Simulink The proposed MPPT algorithm presents good static and dynamic performances.


A Kalman Filter Based Approach for Light Flicker Evaluation of Power Systems
Kose, Neslihan; Salor, Ozgul; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2009-01-01)
In this paper, a Kalman filtering based approach is proposed to measure the light flicker of the electricity transmission systems. Analytical expressions of the instantaneous light flicker sensation are obtained beginning from a voltage waveform and these expressions are used to obtain a flicker estimation method based on the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) flickermeter. In the proposed method, the frequency domain components of the waveform are obtained by Kalman filtering and these compone...
Sliding mode control with optimal sliding surfaces for missile autopilot design
Salamci, MU; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Banks, SP (2000-07-01)
A new method is introduced to design sliding mode control with optimally selected sliding surfaces for a class of nonlinear systems. The nonlinear systems are recursively approximated as linear time-varying systems, and corresponding time-varying sliding surfaces are designed for each approximated system so that a given optimization criterion is minimized. The control input, which is designed by using an approximated system, is then applied to the nonlinear system. The method is used to design an autopilot ...
Adaptive output feedback control with reduced sensitivity to sensor noise
Kutay, Ali Türker; Hovakimyan, N (2003-01-01)
We address adaptive output feedback control of uncertain nonlinear systems with noisy output measurements, in which both the dynamics and the dimension of the regulated system may be unknown, and only the relative degree of the regulated output is assumed to be known. Given a smooth reference trajectory, the problem is to design a controller that forces the system measurement to track it with bounded errors. A recently developed method proposes the use of a linear error observer that estimates the tracking ...
Investigation of inertial support limits in wind turbines and the effects on the power system stability
Duymaz, Erencan; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
In this study, the inertial support implementation is studied for variable speed wind turbines with a full-scale power electronics. To increase the active power as desired, Machine Side Converter is modified with an additional control loop. In the first part of the thesis, active power of the wind turbine is increased to the limits and the maximum achievable active power is found out to be restricted by the wind speed. It is found that the wind turbine can increase its output power by 40% of rated power in ...
Investigation of subsynchronous resonance risk in the 380 kv Turkish electric network
Ozay, N.; Güven, Ali Nezih (null; 1988-12-01)
Subsynchronous resonance (SSR) occurs when a resonant frequency of a series compensated transmission system interacts with a natural frequency of the turbine prime mover. This form of SSR is referred to as torsional interaction which, under certain conditions, may become self-excited and cause serious damage to electrical equipment and turbine shafts. The presence of a thermal power plant (Kangal) in the close vicinity of a group of series capacitors in Eastern Turkey necessitated a careful investigation of...
