This paper presents a wind turbine generation system based on the Z-source inverter with maximum boost control. The proposed system can boost and generate the desired output voltage efficiently when the low voltage of the generator is introduced according to the low wind speed. Moreover, when the wind speed is high, providing higher voltage, the system can also work like the traditional inverter without the boost condition. The proposed system has high performance, minimal component count, increased efficiency and reduced cost. These outstanding performance attributes make the proposed system suitable for the wind turbine distributed generation systems.
