Recent developments in wind energy research including wind speed prediction, wind turbine control, operations of hybrid power systems, as well as condition monitoring and fault detection are surveyed. Approaches based on statistics, physics, and data mining for wind speed prediction at different time scales are reviewed. Comparative analysis of prediction results reported in the literature is presented. Studies of classical and intelligent control of wind turbines involving different objectives
