This paper addresses the problem of bond graph methodology as a graphical approach for modeling wind turbine systems. In this case, we consider the modeling of a wind turbine system with individual pitch control scheme and the interaction with tower motions. Two different bond graph models are presented, one complex and one simplified. Furthermore, the purpose of this paper is not to validate a specific wind turbine model, but rather show the difference between modeling with a classical mechanical method and by using the bond graph approach. Simulation results illustrate the simplified system response obtained using implementation of the governing equations in MATLAB/Simulink and is compared with a bond graph implementation in the simulation program 20-sim.
