In this paper, the authors present the simulation of power electronic converter for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) based Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS). The modeling of wind turbine and PMSG is carried out in MATLAB to determine its parameters. An Active Diode Clamped MultiLevel Inverter (ADCMLI) with a novel Double Carrier Pulse Width Modulation (DCPWM) has been proposed for the wind energy system. Performance parameters are evaluated for the proposed converter and the results are verified.
