Abstract: This paper deals with a hybrid sliding mode control and super twisting algorithm second order sliding mode control with Petri network (HSMC-STA) applied to reach the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of a variable speed wind energy conversion system. It is aimed to solve the main and major undesired phenomenon faced by conventional sliding mode control, the high frequency oscillations (chattering), and to reduce the transient response (rise time) of super twisting algorithm second order sliding mode control systems. The design of a hybrid controller based on switching Petri network sliding mode control (PNSMC) is proposed, wherein a Petri network is used to supervise and switch between the classical sliding mode control law and the super twisting control law. The new hybrid controller is tested in a Simulink/MATLAB environment. Simulation results of the proposed control scheme present good dynamic and steady-state performance compared to the classical SMC and high order sliding mode with respect to the reduction of the chattering phenomenon and transient response.
