Abstract

This paper deals with a small wind energy conversion system (WECS), equipped with a variable-speed wind turbine and a fuzzy Takagi-Sugeno-Kang (TSK) wind estimator is proposed for the maximum power extraction. Using the estimated wind speed, which is usually obtained employing anemometers, a fuzzy-based control system is able to determine and regulate rotor speed for the maximum power extraction. The adoption of a sensorless strategy, especially for small size wind generation systems, leads to lower costs and improved reliability of the overall system.
