Design & Development of MPPT for Micro Wind Turbine and a review on Wind Fuel cell Hybrid System

Prof. Vikas Jainkeri and Prof. Santosh Raikar


Wind power generation is playing a prominent role in the recent years. Wind energy has become the least expensive source of new renewable energies that is also compatible with environment preservation programs. Many countries promote wind power technology by means of national programs and market incentives. The wind turbine captures the windís kinetic energy in a rotor consisting of two or more blades mechanically coupled to an electrical generator to be used for system control. During the low wind speeds, the turbine tends to stop due to the back EMF generated in the generator and during high wind speeds it has to be stopped by connecting a dump load to avoid the mechanical breakage which could result in the reduced power extraction. This paper presents a novel method to solve these problems in two sections. The first section deals with the low wind speed problems and the other deals with the high wind speed problems. During the low wind speeds, the electrical load is disconnected for a shorter duration in which the turbine gains its inertia which is sufficient to generate the maximum power. The proposed solution has been discussed in the second section to connect an electrolyzer as dump load.
