A robust pitch control strategy for the output power control of wind generator systems in wide-wind-speed range is presented in this paper. The corresponding controller is designed, which consists of a nominal inverse-system controller and a robust compensator. The advantages of the proposed strategy include the simple implementation, tolerance of turbine parameter or some nonparametric uncertainties, and robust control of the generator output power with wind-speed variations. Theoretical analyses, simulation, and experimental results show that the proposed controller can work better in a wide-wind-speed range compared with the traditional proportional-integral-derivative controller. It has similar performance with the neural network controller, but less complexity. Additionally, it can be easily adapted to other wind generator systems.
