In multi-MW (1MW and up) wind generation systems a variable speed - variable pitch (VS-VP) control technology is usually adopted to improve speed and torque characteristics and to obtain the optimal energy, which means to obtain the maximum power at low wind speed and the rated power at high wind speed. The power generated by an individual blade of the wind turbine changes considerably during rotation due for the change of wind speed in vertical direction, which decreases the angles of attack in the low blade positions and which leads to a reducing the generated energy. In the paper basing on BEM theory modification for none-homogenously fluid field and an optimization procedure is obtained an individual variable pitch control law as function of wind speed values and blades positions.
