The concern for environment due to the ever increasing use of fossil fuels and rapid depletion of the conventional sources of energy has led to the development of alternative sources of energy. Wind energy, the kinetic energy associated with movement of large masses of air, is an inexhaustible source of energy which generates electricity without harming the environment. But it is unreliable energy source as wind conditions are uncertain and unpredictable. This paper focuses on developing a fuzzy logic controller based stand-alone wind energy conversion system, where this controller manages power production and power storage according to wind conditions & load demand.
