Literature Review for the Individual Project Ziyang Ye 05/03/2016 Abstract Wind power, as a kind of renewable energy, is widely used for electric power generation. Being clean and easily acquired, wind power generation has a bright future. The conversion between wind energy and electric power can be divided into two parts. The kinetic wind energy is converted into mechanical energy by the wind turbine first. Then the mechanical power is converted into electrical power by a generator. The more efficient the conversion is, the less wind power the generator loses. Therefore, study on the efficiency of power conversion becomes an important subject. In this literature review, Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) in Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) under Power Signal Feedback Control algorithm will be mainly discussed. Introduction Wind power not only is clean and renewable but also has a large storage. The storage of wind power is ten times more than the storage of hydro energy which could be exploited and used. It is regarded as an alternative to burning fossil fuel, is widely distributed produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation and uses little land [1]. For islands, grassland, pastoral area, mountain and highland, the water and fuel are always in a shortage. This situation makes the wind power the most suitable energy source for these areas. Therefore, more and more countries have put high importance to the use of wind power. The
