This work is focused on the control of a wind turbine system based on (PMSG). In order to enhance the efficiency of the wind turbine system, the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) control is applied to exploit the maximum power from the wind. The Fuzzy Logic controller (FLC) has been proposed and developed for the speed control. The simulation results show good performances of this control.
