The parallel system is a kind of scientific research method based on an artificial system and computational experiments, which can not only reflect the dynamic process of the real system but also optimize its control process in real time. Given the rapid development of wind energy technology, how to shorten the development and deployment cycle and decrease the programming difficulties of wind energy conversion system (WECS) are major issues for improving the utilization of this form of energy.

With the support of the programming methods of graphical component configurations, visualization technology and dynamic reconfiguration technology, a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) computing experiment of the parallel WECS is carried out. After comparing with MATLAB simulation results, the parallel WECS is verified as having good performance. The Data Engine is an ideal computing unit for modeling and computation of the parallel system and can establish a parallel relationship between the artificial system and the real system so as to achieve the optimal control of WECS.
