In this paper, various control schemes of power management based on wind turbine (blade pitch angle or/and tip speed ratio), load parameters (current, voltage, power) and permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) parameter (rotor speed) are proposed with simple and easy to implement Proportional-Integral (PI) controller for wind energy conversion system (WECS) operation. These control systems can be used for the purpose of power management. Together with these control schemes, the proposed WECS model is implemented in the MATLAB / Simulink environment. The operation of a WECS system is tested under dynamic conditions with these proposed control schemes. The results show that performance of these schemes is found satisfactory and based on these results, a comparative study is done.
