Abstract: The efficiency of a wind turbine highly depends on the value of tip speed ratio during its operation. The power coefficient of a wind turbine varies with tip speed ratio. For maximum power extraction, it is very important to hold the tip speed ratio at optimum value and operate the variable-speed wind turbine at its maximum power coefficient. In this paper, an intelligent learning based adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) is proposed for online estimation of tip speed ratio (TSR) as a function of wind speed and rotor speed. The system is developed by assigning fuzzy membership functions (MFs) to the input-output variables and artificial neural network (ANN) is applied to train the system using back propagation gradient descent algorithm and least square method. During the training process, the ANN adjusts the shape of MFs by analyzing training data set and automatically generates the decision making fuzzy rules. The simulations are done in MATLAB for standard offshore 5 MW baseline wind turbine developed by national renewable energy laboratory (NREL). The performance of proposed neuro-fuzzy algorithm is compared with conventional multilayer perceptron feed-forward neural network (MLPFFNN). The results show the effectiveness of proposed model. The proposed system is more reliable for accurate estimation of tip speed ratio.
