The paper analyzes the structure character of a wind power generation and flywheel energy storage combined system, and presents a new control strategy—fuzzy neural network (FNN) based on genetic arithmetic (GA) for the nonlinear problem of the control system. The control strategy realizes automatic regulation of direct current (DC) bus voltage in the system, so it stabilizes the DC bus voltage of the system. The experimental results show that the controller has better self-learning and robustness, and realizes the satisfactory operation of the proposed system.
