Optimum Setting Strategy for WTGS by Using an Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System


With the popularization of wind energy, the further reduction of power generation cost became the critical problem. As to improve the efficiency of control for variable speed Wind Turbine Generation System (WTGS), the data-driven Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) was used to establish a sensorless wind speed estimator. Moreover, based on the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System, the optimum setting strategy for the maximum energy capture was proposed for the practical operation process. Finally, the simulation was executed which suggested the effectiveness of the approaches.
