Virtual synchronous machine (VSM) control has been put up and developing for the past ten years, but not much work has been done specially focusing on its application on wind turbines (WTs). This paper gives a thorough review of the work that has been done until now about application of VSM control on WTs. Aspects on control schemes, energy storage (ES), frequency and voltage control capabilities, different grid conditions etc. are summarized separately. Further research work in this field is emphasized.
