Abstract: Electrical energy demand increases day-by-day due to economic growth, technology development and increasing world population. The wind is one of the accessible renewable energy sources to generate electrical energy to meet the increased load demand. When the wind energy conversion system (WECS) is operating as isolated mode, it is more reliable, economical and easy to electrify rural areas. When the WECS is connected to load without controller the output three-phase voltages of the inverter have more transient and steady state errors and higher total harmonic distortion in the voltages and currents. This paper discusses various voltage controllers used in WECS in detail. The proposed WECS is simulated using MATLAB/Simulink with and without adaptive voltage controller for balanced and unbalanced non-linear load conditions. In each case the results have been analyzed and total harmonic distortion is evaluated.
