ABSTRACT
In this paper, a fuzzy controller is proposed for wind turbine control. A model is analyzed and combined with a stochastic wind model for simulation purposes. Based on the model, a fuzzy control of wind turbine is developed. Wind turbine control loop provides the reference inputs for the electric generator control loop in order to make the system run with maximum power. Since the wind speed involved in the aerodynamic equations is a stochastic variable, whose effective value cannot be measured directly, a wind speed estimator is also proposed.
