Small wind-powered electricity generation system, providing regulated AC electric power from wind energy to a power system grid, has a wind turbine that produces less than 10kW of peak electric power in a permanent magnet generator that produces generator power with a frequency that varies with the wind speed. The wind turbine utilizes a cross-wind type rotor having a power coefficient that varies with the operating tip speed ratio and has an optimal tip speed ratio where the power coefficient is maximum. A power converter, for converting generator power to regulated electric power by applying a controlled load to the generator controls operation of the wind turbine rotor such that the operating tip speed ratio is greater than the optimal tip speed ratio in a low wind speed region, is approximately equal to the optimal tip speed ratio in a medium wind speed region, and is greater than the optimal tip speed ratio in a high wind speed region. Boost converter used to boost up the output from the generator. However, wind turbine modeling should be done with more accurate to get the best value and have good efficiency.
