The operational reliability of wind energy conversion systems (WECSs) has attracted a lot of attention recently. This paper is concerned with sensor fault detection (FD) and isolation problems for variable-speed WECSs by using a novel filtering method. A physical model of WECS with typical sensor faults is first built. Due to the non-Gaussianity of both wind speed and measurement noises in WECSs, an improved entropy optimization criterion is then established to design the filter for WECSs. Different from previous entropy-filtering results, the generalized density evolution equation (GDEE) is adopted to reveal the relationship among the estimation error, non-Gaussian noises, and the filter gain. The sensors FD and isolation algorithms are then obtained by evaluating the decision rule based on the residual signals generated by the filter. Finally, simulation results show that the sensor faults in WECSs can be detected and isolated effectively by using the proposed method.
