1000 Threads found on edaboard.com: Wilson Current Source
The wilson current source is particularly advantageous to use in the case of bipolar tech. There is no advantage for the case of MOSFETs. The explanation is given in more detail by Prof.Brodersen in his video lecture(EECS140 at ) when another person asked the same question as you did.

I need to design a current source rated 1Amp for a battery charger i'm doing, i need to know what would be the best one, a simple wilson, a widlar, mos, bjt or something else altogether?
Should i use simple transistors or a transistor array and which ones u recommend?
It's for driving Dallas/Maxim Ds2711 circuit battery charger.

The wilson current mirror doesn't provide much advantage when using MOS. It's biggest strength is eliminating base current error when using BJT's.
However, here's how it functions in your configuration:
Assuming initially all devices are off, the following sequence of events will happen during start-up:
1) I4 will start increasing (...)
