Harvesting energy on a global, sustainable, and economic scale is one of the major challenges of this century With emerging  markets, newly industrializing  nations, and shortage of existing resources, this problem will continue to grow Wind energy, in the current scenario, is playing a central role, being the fastest-growing source of energy worldwide in the last few decades However, long-term economic sustainability of wind energy is still to be achieved This would imperatively require improving critical engineering and economic practices to reduce  the cost of wind energy as compared to conventional energy to help increase its proliferation  Wind turbines are complex systems, with large flexible structures working under very  turbulent  and  unpredictable environmental conditions  Moreover,  they  are  subject  to  a  variable and demanding electrical grid Their efficiency, cost, availability, and reliability  strongly depend on the applied control strategy As wind energy penetration in the grid  increases, additional challenges such as the response to grid voltage dips, active power  control and frequency regulation, reactive power control and voltage regulation, grid  damping, restoration of grid services after power outages, necessity of wind prediction,  etc, crop up.
