This paper presents the intelligent tuned PID controller-based Single Ended Primary Inductor Converter (SEPIC) for Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) operation of Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS). As the voltage and frequency of the Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) varies with the wind speed changes, Intelligent controlled SEPIC is utilized to maintain the constant DC link voltage. The intelligent tuned PID controller combines the advantages of both conventional and soft controllers. The 1.5MW variable speed WECS (VSWECS) with AC-DC-AC converter is developed using MATLAB/Simulink software. PMSG delivers a load/utility grid through an uncontrolled diode rectifier, intelligent controlled SEPIC and three phase inverter. The real time implementation of the proposed system is done by the DSP processor MSP430F5529. The performance of the SEPIC is tested in both simulation and experiment at different wind speed conditions. The performance of the proposed Intelligent MPPT control of SEPIC are compared with the conventional PID controller. Intelligent tuning of PID controller such as Fuzzy-PID, and ANFIS-PID is implemented in the proposed system and results are compared. The simulation and experimental results reveals that the proposed ANFIS method provide improved performance than the conventional PID method in terms of power quality.
