Wind energy system is lately receiving a lot of attention, because they are cost inexpensive, environmental safe and clean renewable energy source, as compared with nuclear and fossil fuel power generation. The operational characteristics of wind electric turbines has considerable dissatisfaction and stress on the quality of electric power system. Harmonics, variations of voltage and reactive power are most of power quality issues for grid connected with wind turbine. This paper introduces a design and simulation of unified power quality conditioner using a fuzzy controller to improve the power quality for Egyptian power grid connected to Zafarana Egypt wind system. The proposed performance of the unified power quality conditioner system is verified by simulating the model using MATLAB/SIMULINK environment. The simulation results showed that the proposed unified power quality conditioner provide efficient cancellation of both load current  harmonics  and supply voltage sag in addition to compensation of reactive power, and thus making the electrical grid connected wind energy system more efficient by improving the quality of power.
