This paper concerns power regulation of variable-speed wind energy conversion systems. These systems have two regions of operation, depending on the tip speed ratio of the wind turbines. They are distinguished by a minimum phase behavior in one of these regions and a nonminimum phase one in the other. A sliding mode control strategy is proposed that assures stability in both regions of operation and imposes the ideally designed feedback control solution in spite of model uncertainties. Moreover, power regulation by the proposed sliding control in the minimum phase region is completely robust to wind disturbances and parameter uncertainties
