Abstract: In this paper a wind energy conversion system (WECS) is designed to supply power to a standalone system consisting of permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG), a rectifier system, and inverter system to get the desired constant ac voltage respectable of variable wind speed to extract power from the fluctuating wind, controlling of the wind turbine is done by controlling the pitch angle of turbine. This power is transferred to dc link capacitor through controlled rectifier. This constant dc link voltage is converted into ac of desired amplitude and frequency. Based on extensive simulation results using MATLAB/SIMULINK, it has been established that the performance of the controllers both in transient as well as in steady state is quite satisfactory and it can also maintain maximum power point tracking
