Background: The presented article is a contribution to the realization of a wind emulator
based on a continuous-current machine. The development of this topic focuses on the modeling of a
vertical axis wind turbine, a DC motor with independent excitation and its control via a chopper.
Methods: To carry out this work, we have studied and designed the electronic and mechanical sensors
as well as a command implemented on the dSPACE DS1103 system.
Result: The main purpose of this work is related, on one hand, to the control of the motor turbine by
imposing the wind profile and on the other hand generate the command of the implanted MPPT. The
experimental results obtained showed the great performances which characterize this improved wind
Keywords: electric motor, wind, turbine, electric generator, maximum power tracking (M.P.T.T).
