Modeling and simulation of a grid connected wind-driven electricity generation system or WECS (an acronym for Wind Energy Conversion System) has been done. Our aim is to design and test a power system of 14.9 KVA capacity, operating at 440V, 20m/s base wind speed, induction generator based-wind energy system via. MATLAB simulation. The different components of a wind energy system namely the wind turbine, generator, controller system, rectifier-inverter, battery , load and other equipments including transformers, grid etc. were decided as per the scope of this project following which the design steps and modeling of the system in MATLAB simulation environment - SIMULINK was undertaken.
