This paper deals with controlling the output power smoothing of a wind energy conversion systems (WECS) by using permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG). It uses the inertia control of the wind turbine and DC-link voltage control. The PMSG is connected to the grid through a generator-side converter and a grid-side inverter based on AC-DC-AC methods. The generator-side converter is used to control the torque of the PMSG while the grid-side inverter is used to control DC-Link voltage and grid voltage. Fuzzy logic is implemented to determine the torque command by using inertia of wind turbine. The inputs of the fuzzy logic are given by the operating point of the rotational speed of the PMSG and the difference between the wind turbine torque and the generator torque. From the proposed method, the generator torque is smoothed and kinetic energy generated by the inertia of the wind turbine is used to smooth the power fluctuations of PMSG. Also, a stable operation of WECS is achieved during the system fault by using the chopper circuit in the DC-link circuit. The output power smoothing is achieved with stability and low cost. The effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by the numerical simulations.

Keywords: fuzzy logic; output power smoothing; DC-link voltage control; torque control; wind turbine inertia control; system fault
