Abstract: Tracing of operating point where maximum power is extracted, regulation of power and speed are the major control objectives for the main component of WECS i.e., wind turbine. A controller with objective designed for one operating region may not sustain better performance in any other operating region. To overcome such issues and achieve improved nature of performance in any operating region using a new advancement in controller with future prediction capability and thus attain the required control objectives. In this work, such objectives are achieved by using continuous-time multi model predictive control and Quantitative Feedback Theory control (QFT). Both the controllers’ performance is compared using simulink studies for a wind turbine model. Simulation results will show the performance of the above mentioned control scheme. The entire simulation work will be carried out on MATLAB/Simulink environment.
