In this paper, we propose a multiobserver switching control strategy for robust active fault tolerant fuzzy control (RAFTFC) of variable-speed wind energy conversion systems (WECS) in the presence of wide wind variation, wind disturbance, parametric uncertainties, and sensors faults. The Takagi-Sugeno (TS) fuzzy model with parametric uncertainties is adopted for modeling the nonlinear WECS and establishing fuzzy state observers. Sufficient conditions are derived for robust stabilization in the sense of Taylor series stability and are formulated in linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Application to WECS, subject to uncertain parameters and sensor faults illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed controllers.
