Abstract: This paper focuses on modelling of a standalone variable speed wind turbine using MATLAB and increasing its performance by extracting the maximum power below rated wind velocity using MPPT algorithm and maintaining constant power using active pitch angle control for above rated wind velocity. The wind turbine is coupled to a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) which can operate on variable speed. A variable resistive load will extract the maximum energy possible and utilise it for heating applications.
