The aim of this paper is to present a comparative study between two maximum power point tracking (MPPT) control based on tip speed ratio (TSR) method: maximum power control with wind speed measurement (TSR-MPCWSM) and the maximum power control with wind speed estimation (TSR-MPCWSE). These methods are analytically compared to illustrate TSR-MPPT and power smoothing capability delivered by the turbine. The dynamic performance, robustness, and fast approximation of the optimal value are proved with the simulations under MATLAB/Simulink software
