Abstract: The Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) is one of the most important renewable energy systems in the existing power network, which can be operated in either grid connected or standalone mode. In the standalone WECS, voltage and frequency variations are more due to the wind speed variations, load changes and switching surges. In this paper, space vector pulse width modulation based adaptive voltage controller with load current observer is used to control the voltage and frequency, for the standalone or isolated WECS. The isolated system is simulated using MATLAB/Simulink and the results are analysed when three-phase non-linear and linear (Resistive and Inductive) balanced and unbalanced loads are connected.
