This paper deals with the modelling and control of a variable speed doubly fed induction generator-based marine current turbine with and without tidal current speed sensor. The proposed maximum power point tracking control strategy relies on the resource and the marine turbine models that were validated by experimental data. The sensitivity of the proposed control strategy is analysed regarding the swell effect because it is considered as the most disturbing one for the resource model. Tidal current data from the Raz de Sein (Brittany, France) are used to run simulations of a 7.5-kW prototype over various flow regimes. Simulation results are presented and fully analysed.
