Maximization of the power delivered from permanent magnet synchronous generator wind energy conversion system to the grid based on using moth flame optimization

In recent years, optimization techniques have been developed to improve accuracy and reduce execution time. The moth flame optimization technique (MFO) adapts to moth behavior. This design is based on the moth's transverse orientation. Over long distances, they maintain a fixed angle with respect to the moon at night. They spiral around the lights, however. Moths are trapped in a deadly spiral as the light approaches; eventually, they all converge on it. Furthermore, they are created by artificial light and fly similarly. To maximize the power delivered to the grid, moth flame optimization (MFO) is used to optimize the controller parameters of the wind energy conversion system (WECS). A permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) implements a grid-connected WECS. a grid side converter (GSC) and a generator machine side converter (MSC) are used. A simulation package was used to model the proposed model. PSIM software was used to simulate power circuits and converters. Simulations were done in MATLAB. As a result, the obtained controller coefficients minimize both overshoot and steady-state error. Particle swarm optimization (PSO) and harmony search optimization (HSO) results were compared. MFO is a reliable method.
