Thanks @shubham, but I don't see how is your answer calculating Base rotor speed. I see a calculation of power not based rotor speed,, please help, thanks again

thanks @braa but I solved this and found more accurate value than you
P0= 0.5(ρAVw)*(Vw)2*cp*k
according to geographical condition so I opt value according to that
Cp= .5
Vs= 12m/s
now here in this model rating of turbine is I Watt
so after multiplying this all just multiply wit 746W to convert it into fro Kilo Watt to Watt. you will get 152.268.

hope every body's problem regard this will be solved.
and please respect the author Siva Malla.

From Very long,The author is not commenting on the query raised on Base Speed of Rotor =152.89.

I would Like to ask from which formula,he reached to it.

According to me,Wbase should be=2*pi*60/(Number of Pole Pair)=75.3

Please,take check of all such confusion before using this model,as waveforms looks good so it's trap and also no MPPT is there.

This model is very good, but may I ask where can I get the detailed parameters of the turbine, like the rotational inertia of the rotor and the starting torque?
Thank you very much!

13 Dec 2013 Venkatesh Yadav

proper references are not provided despite the users request. Most of the blocks of the model is similar to that of the one presented in the simpowersystems examples of Matlab 2012 version.

Thank you for sharing this model sir.
However, may I know where I can find the wind turbine inertia constant value? where can I get the wbase value which you used as "152.8".
Anyone can help me on this? Thanks

Dear Kshitiz Byahatti: Yes, you can change ratings of PMSG generator, but according to PMSG ratings you should also change wind and other ratings like L, C etc....My email Id is

Thanks for that very helpful model.

The only thing that confuses me a lot is that, given the wind turbine characteristics ( turbine output power vs turbine speed ), how is it possible that for wind speeds lets say 30m/s the output power to be greater than the power for 12m/s. I might have misinterpreted the characteristic though. I would be thankful if anyone could clarify this to me.

Thank you for your amazing model , helped me a lot ..
Can you please support me with the mathematical equations of the mass drive train, the wind turbine model and the Pitch angle .

06 Mar 2013 Ahmed lamine

Dear Siva,
First of all thank you for sharing your amazing work with us.
I wanted to know if I want to changed the output power to be only 500watts what are the parameters that should be changed.
also just for clarifying the scheme contains only wind+ PMSG there is no battery and other devices that are discussed in the reference you have provided.
Thank you.

Dear Siva,

1st and foremost, Thank you for this amazing model. I have a few questions for this model.
1) This model is for constant wind speed right? so the pitch angle is zero
2) but if I change the constant wind speed to fluctuate wind speed using random number block. The pitch angle is also zero. Isn't have to be change a bit?

I've been facing this kind of problem for my model too. Hope you can help.

Dear Siva Malla. can you provide me with more papers to understand the scheme. I am asked to simulate wind power and change of frequency and the effect on the grid. on other words, how is the frequency going to change when we connect Wind turbine to a group of sys generator. I need to study the effect.

thank you

I read the article, but one thing still confusing me is the pitch angle controller. Could you explain to me how to adjust the angle. Or you can include any reference regarding this part.

Dear Irshad Ismail: see this paper for more details:

C. N. Bhende, S. Mishra, S. G. Malla, “Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator-Based Standalone Wind Energy Supply System” IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy, vol. 2, pp.361 – 373. Oct. 2011.

If you have any doubts after read this paper then I will explain.

Hi, Siva. I name is Irshad. Firstly thank you for sharing the amazing model with others. But could you explain to me in detail how did you design the wind turbine model, especially the pitch angle controller section and the 2 mass drive train section. It would be grateful if you can share with us all the matters that you considered in designing this model.
Thank you.
