Abstract  In this paper, we have studied the dynamic behavior of high power wind energy conversion system (WECS)
connected to the electrical grid. The system is composed by a three blade horizontal wind turbine, a permanent magnet
synchronous generator (PMSG) with high number of poles; which offers possibility to eliminate the gearbox, and finally by
an indirect frequency converter between generator and the grid. We have used an aleatory profile of wind speed in order to
illustrate the different controls realized, especially with maximum power point tracking algorithm (MPPT) and Pitch control
at wind turbine level. The simulation results under Matlab\Simulink® obtained and commented in order to validate the
approach.
