It is necessary to use the wind power from a viewpoint of environmental protection of the earth. However a large wind power generation system has limitations on the location, and a small wind power system is required for wide use of wind power.
This paper describes a new approach to simulate the small wind power generating systems using PMSG. The dynamic transient of the generating system by finite element method taking into account the motion equation of the wind turbine is analyzed. The influence of cogging torque on the generating performance is investigated.
