In this article, a technique is proposed for maximum power-point tracking control of a wind generation system. The optimal operation speed to which the wind turbine output power maximizes is determined with parameters identified by an iterative least squares technique. The effectiveness of the maximum point tracking control with identified parameters of wind turbine is verified by computer simulation. In addition, the article discusses how to address rotational speed and output power in the case when the wind turbine parameters used for determining the optimum rotational speed have errors.

Keywords: maximum power-point tracking; online parameter identification; wind turbine generation system
