Abstract

The maximum power point tracking is a very important scheme of many renewable energy. It can increase the power efficiency. However, many traditional methods has defects for the applications. This study proposed a novel fractional order incremental conductance algorithm (FOINC) for the maximum power point tracking design of small wind power systems. The proposed method is prompt in the transient of maximum power point tracking and has good steady-state response. Moreover, it can increase the maximum power tracking efficiency of system without changing the wind power system equipments. The comparison between the traditional incremental conductance method (INC) and Perturbation and Observation (P&O) proved the reliability and effectiveness of the proposed method.
