Modeling wind energy conversion systems is a difficult task that requires the use of a unified language gathering all aspect of energies involved such as kinetic energy, mechanical energy, and electrical energy. Bond Graph methodology is an appropriate tool to analyze wind turbine dynamic behavior since the whole system is modelled in the same frame. Herein, a methodology for HAWT's rotor modeling is proposed based on Bond Graph, aerodynamic laws and Rayleigh Beam theory. It takes into consideration the profile, chord, and twist change along the blade. The model is validated using 20-Sim software and then compared to other models from literature. Simulation results show a better value of power coefficient in comparison with works using the same tools.
