Wind turbine (WT) is a complex system comprised of many different components with different functions; it is a formidable challenge to understand the dynamic behaviour of a WT and the root cause of any disturbances, owing to the integration of aerodynamic, mechanical and electrical components in an environment subject to significant stochastic environment forcing. Therefore, there is a need for robust and reliable model to study the performance of WTs in terms of truly integrated electrical and mechanical responses. This paper presents a new model for WT by using MATLAB. This model can be simulated under various operating conditions to yield valuable information for condition monitoring and effective algorithm development for fault detection.
