Keywords: Autonomous power systems, wind-diesel systems, robust control, multivariable frequency analysis, decoupling, LQC/loop transfer recovery

Abstract: The aim of this paper is twofold. First to present multivariable frequency domain techniques as a tool for controller design and dynamic analysis of an autonomous wind-diesel power system. Secondly to study how robust model based controllers can be designed for such systems.
