In this paper, a mathematical method is proposed to control the output frequency of a self-excited induction generator using wind turbines and static loads. A dynamic model of the wind turbine is implemented to model the Connections and fittings of the wind turbine to convert the wing energy to electrical energy. Also a PID controller system is proposed to control the rotor speed of the wind turbine. The proposed mathematical model is developed in MATLAB-Simulink software. The simulation results showed that the developed controller can be used to control the wind turbine velocity.
