In this paper, a transient study on Isolated Wind-Diesel Hybrid System (IWDHS) of 200 kW has been carried out in MATLAB/SIMULINK environment. The detailed model of synchronous generator coupled to diesel engine, self-excited induction generator and load is studied and considered for analyzing the dynamic behavior of IWDHS. It has been taken into consideration that most of the time; the energy is to be provided by wind turbine in comparison to diesel generator. Instead of a fixed wind speed, the IWDHS is being supplied by variable wind speeds. that are more than its nominal value (10 m/s). This function is accomplished by using a conventional PI controller which regulates the pitch angle of the wind turbine blades during incoming varying gusts of wind. Further the system performance is improved by implementing an ANFIS controller. A controller design process is identified; it consists of generating input-output data pairs to identify the control variables range and initial fuzzy memberships, and then to tune or adapt them using an ANFIS network structure. The control objective was to extract maximum power at varying wind speeds and to limit the power as well as improve settling time at rated value at high wind speeds. The simulations have shown how advantageous an ANFIS based controller is over a conventional PI controller.
