ABSTRACT

This paper is on variable-speed wind turbines with permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG). Three different

drive train mass models and three different topologies for the power-electronic converters are considered. The three dif-

ferent topologies considered are respectively a matrix, a two-level and a multilevel converter. A novel control strategy,

based on fractional-order controllers, is proposed for the wind turbines. Simulation results are presented to illustrate the

behaviour of the wind turbines during a converter control malfunction, considering the fractional-order controllers. Finally,

conclusions are duly drawn. Copyright © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
