This paper analyzes a topology consisting of a permanent-magnet synchronous generator and a Vienna rectifier for a wind energy conversion system. A control strategy leading to maximum efficiency is proposed. Simulation results reveal that this configuration is advantageous with respect to energy efficiency compared to a traditional six-switch two-level converter. Experimental results are provided to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed system.
