It sounds to me as though you have been given a project akin to a length of string...

If you start with a blank sheet of paper - you need to find out the mechanical attributes of the machines you intend to control.
From there you go back to basics.
However the wind turbine has, in it's many different configurations been running for at least 20yrs, so there are control systems already out there; and I recall having sight of one circa 1994.

So it would appear you don't need to start with a blank sheet of paper unless you turbine is somehow unique.
I am fascinated by the recent Siemens direct drive turbine - to be much mechically simpler than earlier designs.

Good Luck !

oneye,
would your D.D. turbine be the one feaqtured in Philips mags circa 1963 and installed on an island NW Scotland? It was v ery succesful but disappeared. Tower was a enormouse venturi. Rotor blades were hollow and sucked air up through the tower and the turbine in throat of venturi. No gearbox - no vibration, no noise, no mechanical losses.
