Abstract: This paper deals with dc-dc converter known as SEPIC stands for single ended primary inductor converter. SEPIC is integrated with wind energy in order to maximize the performance of the system. With the help of simple method of tracking maximum power from wind energy to extract maximum power. Basically wind energy is used to generate electricity and the wind is not in uniform speed. So, by using different electronic components .The main part is dc-dc converter and by using SEPIC in place of normal dc-dc converter the output power i.e. THD will enhanced .Here DBR is used to convert AC to DC. The SEPIC can perform both bucks as well as boost converter. It gives the result in microseconds. The simple algorithm is the main advantage of the proposed work. The output is shown in DC microgrid and AC microgrid. It is for the small scale WECS.The work is supported with experimental results and also the output i.e. THD is calculated and compared with Cuk converter.
Keywords: MPPT, SEPIC (Single Ended Primary Inductor Converter), THD, Wind Energy.
