An adaptive-observer to estimate both the parameters of a new model of the mechanical torque in a wind turbine and the wind velocity is proposed. The model is based in a relative velocity between the wind speed and blades of turbine. Results of torque estimation are compared with those obtained from a heuristic model, commonly used in the literature, showing very good agreement.
