Md. Rejwanur Rashid Mojumdar, Mohammad Sakhawat Hossain Himel, Md. Salman Rahman, and Sheikh Jakir Hossain
Abstract—Wind energy is currently one of the most cost- effective energy source to produce electricity among different renewable resources. With significant growth of wind power capacity installed worldwide and rapid development of technologies, various Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECSs) with different electric machines have been developed during last two decades to maximize the energy capture, to minimize costs, to improve power quality and so on. Within the scope of this review, a comparative study of different WECSs with specific electric machines has been presented describing their concepts, idiosyncrasies, classifications, advantages, disadvantages and current market trends.

Index Terms—WECSs, fixed speed concept, variable speed concepts, direct-drive concepts, geared-drive concepts, partial- scale converter, full-scale converter.
