RÉSUMÉ / ABSTRACT :
This article proposes a comparative study between different control strategies of a wind energy conversion system. It aims to guarantee a robust control strategy which gives a good performance despite the external disturbances. Studied system comprises a wind turbine, a permanent magnet synchronous generator, and two converters linked by a DC bus. The whole is connected to the grid through a resistor–inductor filter. A classical vector control based on proportional–integral controller is applied to our system. Owing to the sensitivity of this control against external disturbances, a control strategy using first-order sliding mode has been proposed. This strategy provides good performance, such as insensitivity to non-linearity of system. Yet, the theory of first sliding mode has faced the problem of chattering, which proved to be a major drawback. To overcome this problem, a control strategy using sliding mode of higher order was implemented on the basis of the super-twisting algorithm.
