This multilevel inverter for the grid interface of permanent magnet synchronous generator. Currently, DFIG based variable speed wind turbine technology with gearbox is dominating the world market share. However, the problems associated with IG based wind turbines paper presents a wind energy conversion system based on a neutral-point clamped are reactive power consumption, mechanical stress and poor power quality. Moreover, the gearbox requires regular maintenance as it suffers from faults and malfunctions. PMSG based wind turbines are; gearless operation, higher efficiency, enhanced reliability, smaller size, reduced cost and low losses. The NPCMLI has been used as a VSI and operated in a voltage control mode in order to achieve the objectives of real power injection and load compensation (power factor correction, load balancing, voltage fluctuation elimination and harmonic compensation). This paper focuses on control of PMSG based grid connected variable speed WT with maximum power extraction (MPE). Simulation of the proposed model has been done in MATLAB/SIMULINK and from the results obtained through simulation are shown.
