Abstrac ­ In this paper carried adaptive controller design and fuzzy logic control (FLC) is applied to the wind turbine shaft torque. Design goal to improve the performance of wind turbines to increase efficiency. Control system designed to facilitate adaptive estimation of the "shaft torque" wind turbines.

Wind speed and other variables that will determine influence appropriate alternative for the implementation of control systems in a plant[1-2].The geographical position of a region also affects the wind speed, for example in the upstream or coastal areas. Local topology can be used to conduct a study of wind turbine applications[2-3]. There are many types of wind turbine configurations that can be used to extract the energy and connection with the use of synchronous or asynchronous machines, stall regulation and pitch regulation system [45]. Variations in wind speed can produce exctract for further wind power into electrical energy transformation and electricity sent through the network with a particular specification. [6-7]. Wind speed data used in this study is the sampled data from the Meteorological Station: Surabaya Juanda Meteorology Station, Location: '070 23 '05 "70 S: 1120 47' 02" 68 E, elevation: 28 meters, Element: Wind, measuring tool: Anemometer, Units: Knots, data from BMG converted into units meters per second (m/s) [8]. Wind speed data are grouped into 3 zones based on the level of speed. 1zone speed range (0,12) m/ s. 2 zone speed range (2,1-3,9) m/s, and 3 zone speed range (4-7) m/s. One of the wind speed profile is shown in Fig.1.[1-2].

Wind turbine components comprising a rotor consisting of a number of fins (blade) and mounted on the front of a swivel shaft (hub/shaft) connected at the rear of the turbine through a gear box. Axis swivel out of the gearbox is coupled to a generator which then generators change mechanical energy into electrical energy [9-10]. A rotor blade's wind turbine is composed of 3 fins which serve to capture wind energy in the form of mechanical energy. The problem in this section is the aerodynamic design of effective and efficient, and tries hard materials durability and fins and a propeller. Gearbox: gear system includes a low turn change the speed of the propeller (about 100 rpm) to a high turn rate (> 500 rpm) for input generator.[11-14].



Control algorithm in the adaptive system consists of two parts; basic algorithms and adaptation algorithms. In adaptive control system there are two levels of the system. The lower level are the basic controls that are (executor of the control algorithm) that directly receive data from the plant and determine the control decision, and a higher level called adaptation (executor has the adaptation algorithm). The second level of control both the basic control level and control level of adaptation, they will improve the system performance is often referred to as a two-tier system. The system shown in Figure 2. Adaptive general controls consist of a control algorithm based on the adaptation algorithm. In this study the basic control algorithm is Feedback Linearization. The use of favorable feedback, because linearization control linear relationship obtained from additional input v (which is previous controller output signal) of the variable speed wind turbine angle (). Fig. 3 show a model of wind turbine system and Table 1. Show wind turbine parametres. Feedback linearization is a control system that can manipulate variable (MV) of torque is the model for process variable (PV) is a constant (). In the wind turbine control system based on braking system has a central role in the manipulation of the turbine torque. Original torque (Tt) is derived from turbine gearboxes, while ( Tem ) torsion sub-system. The equation as show as eq. 1. Things that need to be observed is the condition Tt changing conditions caused by changing wind speeds at all times. Thus, to obtain the optimum control results, required sensing system that monitors the change of Tt, and will affect the magnitude Tem. Thus the adaptation algorithm is needed to monitor changes in Tt is caused by input changes. Furthermore adaptation algorithm as show in eq. 2-3. Understanding adaptive mentioned is a change / update the quantities here`in`after Tt change (adaptive) to wind speed input.

The relationship of torque and angular velocity of the turbine is shown as ; & J R = Tt - Tem (6)


Control system block diagram-torque shaft designed in wind turbine using adaptive feedback linearization control shown in Fig. 4. Wind velocity (), is the system input variables. Changes input system will be controlled by a PID controller and feedback system will next controlled by the adaptive law, so the system will continually adapt, or to vary the amount of torque from a wind turbine gearboxes. With the entry has changed and still be able to produce output torque in accordance with the Field Oriented Control (FOC). Fig.5. Therefore a system actuators turbine braking system, the process variable in the equation of wind turbine model will generate output control system of the shaft angular velocity. Fuzzy logic is a methodology of problem-solving control system that can be applied to human language (high, low, long, short, etc.) Which allows eliminating the difficulty of mathematical language Fuzzification is a process of mapping from the input of the set of strict (crisp) into the form of fuzzy sets for a particular conversation universe? The data was then converted into mapping linguistic forms according to the labels of fuzzy sets that have been defined for the system input variables Fuzzy Inference. Engine (Fuzzy processing) is the core of a fuzzy logic controller that has the ability as humans to make decisions Defining the size of membership and degree of linguistic variables of the action undertaken to control each of the control rules based on implication functions are used. Defuzzification has transformed the functions are fuzzy conclusions into crisp signals (which are real) by using the defuzzification operator. Mapping ripples fuzzy control action (fuzzy domain name) into the control action of the non-fuzzy (crisp) defuzzification base( Table-2). Fuzzy logic control strategy proposed for the control of wind turbine shaft torque. By combining PI-fuzzy controller, the control point can be introduced, which are designed carefully to both the on-line and off-line which can then be applied to the rotation shaft torque actuation. FLC strategy can overcome the possible parameters of uncertainty, lack precision and what was not sure in some mathematical models based on the human knowledge.

Integral Time Absolute Error (ITAE) is one of the methods used to measure the absolute error of the performance of a system. Shown in eq.4 ; This criterion is the performance index of the most easily applied. If this criterion is applied, the damping system for damping down and cannot be optimum. Optimum systems based on these criteria are a system that has damping characteristics and meet the following transient response ; Like the previous criteria, a large initial error in the unitstep response has a small weight, and the error happens next will affect the transient response.

The FLC action showed a better response than PID adaptive control, this is indicated by the time the achievement of steady state (ts) that is shorter, the maximum overshoot (Mp), and steady state error (ess.) A smaller. ITAE value of the FLC smaller than the PIDadaptive controller system, this shows that the resistance (robustness) systems using FLC better than PID-adaptive controllers, both associated with a disturbance and no disturbance.
