The problem of controlling a variable-speedvariable-pitch wind turbine in non conventional operating points is addressed.We aim to provide a control architecture for a general active power tracking problem for the entire operating envelope. The presented control enables to cope with system non linearities while handling state and input constraints, and avoiding singular points. Simulations are carried out based on a 600 kW turbine parameters. Montecarlo simulation shows that the proposed controller presents a certain degree of robustness with respect to the system major uncertainties .
