The importance of alternative energy sources increases year by year, implying that the monitoring and controlling design of alternative energy generators become more significant. Wind power has a great potential to supply renewable energy without dependence on traditional fossil oil technologies. The monitoring of wind turbines can facilitate the prevention of accidental downtime due to component or structure failure. The acquisition of data under different conditions can be time and cost consuming. Low-cost, low power wireless sensors have materialized as a window for these applications. Economical and flexible wireless sensors networks can be installed within a large structure to evaluate the response and performing monitoring algorithms. In this paper, wireless sensors are deployed into a wind turbine farm to monitor the structures to present models of wind turbine behavior and response to loading and controlling the generator parameters by getting even to rewrite the control algorithm from the system.
