In this work the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is utilized to framing the optimal parameters of Fuzzy Logic Controller FLC, this parameter is (centers and width) of triangle membership functions, the proposed method can design a robust controller to govern the speed of wind turbine WT, adjusting pitch angle of blade can regulate the output power of WT at a wide range of wind speed, the mean objective of this work is to make the operation of WT works as like as traditional motivator used in power system. By SIMULINK-MATLAB we implement the complete mathematical model of the system. The simulation results demonstrate that the Optimized Fuzzy Logic Control (OFLC) gets a better parameters of fuzzy sets using PSO, and realizes a good dynamic behavior compared with conventional FLC.
