##### Abstract

On the basis of the flywheel energy converter’s structure in wind power turbine, we have used permanent-magnet synchronism motor as energy converter and built mathematical model. We have studied and realized control method of wind power turbine’s constant output power. By analyzing the mathematical model, we have concluded that the needed time of stored energy is three times longer than constant torque control time, and the needed motor power is one second of constant torque control. When flywheel starts from zero speed to basic speed ([(ω_max)/5]), the constant torque control method will be acquired. When flywheel speeds up between [(ω_max)/5] and ω_max , the amplitude power control will be acquired. What we have studied is very important to realize constant output power.
