Abstract: This paper presents the performance improvement of wind turbine PMG by incorporating multilevel inverter and maximum power point tracking controller with perturb and observation method is proposed. To reduce the number of stages and improve the efficiency a cacade MLI with reduced number of power switches is proposed. The proposed wind turbine driven PMSG and MLI is modelled.The proposed wind turbine, mPMG with multilevel power converters are madelled in MATLAB and results are analysed for various input and output load conditions.
