This paper addresses the problem of bond graph methodology as a graphical approach for the modeling of wind turbine generating systems. The purpose of this paper is to show some of the benefits the bond graph approach has, in contributing a model for wind turbine systems. We will present a nonlinear model of a wind turbine generating system, containing blade pitch, drive train, tower motion and generator. All which will be modeled by means of bond graph. We will especially focus on the drive train, and show the difference between modeling with a classical mechanical method and by using bond graph. The model consists of realistic parameters, but we are not trying to validate a specific wind turbine generating system. Simulations are carried out in the bond graph simulation software 20-sim.
