For a wind turbine operating below rated power, the control strategy is to maximize energy capture from the wind and minimize the turbine transient loads. In this paper, a variable speed fixed pitch wind turbine is used to realize this strategy. A LQG speed control scheme and two tracking control schemes will be investigated. The controllers are evaluated by simulations.
