I used the below Microsoft PowerShell script to convert from SP2013 Windows Claims to ADFS Claims: Reference - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-IN/library/dn744263.aspx

$wa = Get-SPWebApplication -Identity "https://WebAppURL"

$tp= Get-SPTrustedIdentityTokenIssuer "ADFS Claims"

$skiplist = "D:\skiplist.csv"

Convert-SPWebApplication -Identity $wa -TO CLAIMS-TRUSTED-DEFAULT -FROM CLAIMS-WINDOWS -TrustedProvider $tp -sourceskiplist $skiplist -RetainPermissions -Force

But the script is displaying the below error:

Convert-SPWebApplication : Exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' was thrown.Parameter name: configuration

How do I fix this and convert the user to ADFS claims?

Have a look at the MSDN documentation, in your code it appears you've used -TrustedProvider and -sourceskiplist as parameters, which do not appear in the MSDN doc.
