Abstract: Variable design control has shown that it is easy to use existing electronics for the variable speed wind energy converter control. Its main disadvantage is the increase in mechanical stress due to the squawking, which can, nevertheless, be reduced using different techniques. The paper presents Sliding Mode Control (SMC) Design for Variable Speed Wind Farm Systems (VS-WFS), which is based on and linked to an electrical network using the Permanent Magnet Sync Generator (PMSG).This paper recommendations various aspects of PMSG including topology with controlled and uncontrolled rectifier, grid connected and standalone mode of operation using different control methods PMSG-based W. The overall performance assessment of PMSG can be augmented through the use of advanced optimization techniques by a number of control mechanisms. A qualitative analysis based on the techniques is carried out and the relevant benefits and disadvantages are discussed.
